John Lyons had an excellent article in Horse & Rider magazine about bridling. This was about 15 years ago though, so don't know if you can access it through their website but I am sure you can track it down or something similiar to it on the internet. I remember at that time, I took a horse in for training & she had been mucked with in the bridling department & was nutso when it came to bridling. I followed those instructions to a tee & within a 1/2 hour, she was fine. I am pretty sure it was the owner's doing, because when this mare went back to the owner, the same problem arose, so I showed her how to do it & problem solved again in 5 minutes. Best advice I can give you, way to lengthy for me to type out here, sorry.
