I’m looking to become bitless, but I don’t know where to start. Can you help me out?

That helps so much! Thanks a million!!
Hello Anna! You have to be very progressive in order to stay safe. You can start by using less your hands but more your voice and your seat (for alt, direction...), you can also add a second pair of reins but on the noseband.
You can leave your halter under your bridle and put a pair of reins on the bit and once on the halter.
Once you feel that your horse understand all the codes of bitless riding, you can start rider just with a halter. If you are sure that you horse is confortable with the pressure on the nose, then you can stay bitless and buy one 🙂
