I am about to actually tie my horses head to the ground so he can never lift it up ever again. Not really. I know that's bad. Anyway, I am leasing a 17.2hh gelding. I am 5'3. So it's pretty safe to say that when his head is up it is impossible for me to reach... Being the smart little boy he is, he learned "Oh! If I lift up my head like a giraffe, you can't get my bridle on!! muahhahaha!!" So he lets my go as far as puttine the bit in his mouth and then getting ONE EAR in head piece before he throws up his head and doesn't let me put it on. So here I am, fuming, trying to get his head to go down so I can put his bridle on but he just keeps his head up. I end up having to get a stool, but then he pulls his head away and ...gr... ITS EXTREMELY ANNOYING. Instead of taking 2 minutes to get a bridle on, it can take upwards of 10 He didn't always do this. Suggestions...??? He looks innocent, doesn't he?
