    Very good question. You slide your finger very slowly over the lips of your horse’s mouth, at the crease, and gently make him smile so you can get your finger back to the point where there are no teeth. If you can make him smile, then gently press down to touch the gum, they generally will open their mouths. Their teeth don’t go back as far as you think.

    u stick ur thumb back in a horses mouth if they dont take the bit. the reason they take the bit when u do that is cuz they dont like it, so if the horse already takes the bit fine, there’s no point in annoying it.

    Thanks. I get very nervous when people watch me tack up. I’ve been doing it for years and I have no problem with it, but it’s just when people watch me, I suddenly forget what’s what. My worst is forgetting to hold the noseband -.-

    It is proper to always leave the reins over your horse’s head while unbridling and putting on a halter for this very reason. Many people also untack in a stall, or have someone help them. Anticipating that your horse will run is wise, so you can take all steps to head him off at the proverbial pass. He may start to change his behavior if he never has the opportunity to run. Don’t ever give him this opportunity, and over time, you can change his behavior.

    every I time I take the halter off my horse he makes a run for it so i have to put the bridle on over the halter any suggestions on how I can stop him from making a run for it or at least putting the bridle on without the halter there

    take some time to teach your horse how to put his head down. first just pet the area behind his ears so you know hes okay with anything being there, then just give some pressure and when he lowers his head release the pressure. this should help alot when your putting on the bridle. good luck :)

    Make sure you hold the horses head down with your left hand firmly and assert your authority and don’t let it get away with it
