Bitless Bridle
We ride all our horses, whatever their background or previous training, with loose reins and bitless bridles. We use sidepulls or just simple rope halters.

Here are some other sidepull models.

Articles in Indonesian in Tabloid Kuda

Havana Horses has published a page long article in Tabloid Kuda for three months. This horsey magazine was established in Yogyakarta in June 2010 when the first edition was published. Havana Horses was asked to supply an article monthly, on every possible topic concerning natural horse care and natural horsemanship. Of course, we grabbed this opportunity with both hands! Unfortunately the magazine ceased to exist after only four months.
Below you can download the published articles.
