Bitless bridles have been around for a while, but with more attention on horse sport and the social license that goes with it, would an increase in the use of bitless bridles improve horse welfare?

Bitless bridles are often seen as kinder for the horse, more welfare orientated and less severe than bitted bridles. There are many bitless bridles on the market from side pull, to cross under and even rope halters. It is part of many equestrian affiliations rules that a bit must be worn, so many equestrians tend to have bitted bridles instead of bitless, especially if they wish to part take in competitions.

Is there a difference in rein tension bitted vs. bitless?
