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.
