A friend of mine has gone bitless and raves about it.... i'm open minded but am happy with conventional bitting for my horse, but while your horse is young why not try it....

Does she work well in a bosal? If she works well in one then surely there is no reason not to ride her in the bosal or a half bosal if you want to stay bitless? The Dr Cook is a lot stronger than a bosal and puts pressure in different places so might take her little while to get used to. There are also sidepulls, scrawbrigs and hackamores as alteratives to the Dr Cook that you could look into.
