We are a volunteer group of trainers, riders, behaviourists, equine professionals and horse lovers, that have been inspired to organise a specialised global bitless equestrian association.
Offering support, advice on ethical training and the functions of modern bitless bridles.
WBA represents ordinary riders, non-riders, competition riders, trainers, behaviourists and all equestrians, who want to see evidence based ethical training and riding increase in acceptance & popularity for the sustainable well being of the horse both mentally and physically.
We hope that our enthusiasm for change is both inspirational and of course effective as our numbers grow and our voice for the horse becomes a force to be reckoned with.
For some of us, our journey began in Norfolk in 2003 when a small band of riders wanting to investigate ethical and empathetic ways of training horses eventually becoming a BHS affiliated riding club in 2008 and then endorsing equality in Bitless Bridles in 2012.
In 2013 the Norfolk Horse Training and Equitation Club (NHTEC) (supported by the BHA, ISES and others) requested a national rule change to allow bitless bridles in all UK horse sport under the BEF/FEI rules, based upon emerging trends and evidence.
The rule changes were refused by the BEF and all national equestrian bodies without any counter evidence produced. The debate continued until 2016 when NHTEC resigned from the BHS because of their refusal to move forward in reviewing the bitless rules or evidence presented to them and because of their continued discrimination against bitless riders.
World Bitless Association is a company with charitable status and is ‘not for profit’ that means that ALL revenue will be used for the benefit of WBA members and their horses.
WBA needs your support as a paid-up annual member so that we can complete the aims and objectives set down in our constitution.
We need YOU to be the strong organisation YOU want, to represent YOUR views.
