How to Bridle a Difficult Horse

How to Bridle a Difficult Horse


– There are a few things you can do to help your horse learn a bit
more about how to be bridled. One of them would be: be
able to direct their head, both to the left, to the right, up, as well as down. And make sure that you
release the pressure when your horse is getting
the correct answer. So what I like to do is
build a series of patterns and habits that are going to
be beneficial for me bridling my horse, and all the
while building his trust, and his level of
participation as I bridle him. One of those things that
I use very regularly on horses that don’t like to bridle, is I take my lead rope, I
pass it over their head, and then again I work on getting him to drop his head initially, so I’m going to ask him to drop his head, and then from there, I’m going
to start passing the rope into and out of his mouth, and asking him to be
an active participant. This is getting him not only
to be accepting of the bit, and participating in the process, but it’s also building
his trust and creating habits that when I do go to the bridle, he is going to be a little more
comfortable with the bridle, and with the bit. Play around with this, and
