    Thanks for the link :) and it seems simple but I'm pretty sure he'll take months before he'll automatically do that lol

    Also, since you're having issues with him bringing his head up high, you may have problems teaching him to bring his head down with your fingers. You can also start teaching that with his halter and lead rope.

    Hold the lead rope about 6 inches from the halter. Put some pressure straight down on the rope. You're not trying to pull his head down but just create some pressure on his pole. Hold the pressure steady and follow his head. Don't pull harder if he brings his head up or moves to the side. He's just trying to find the release. As soon as he drops his head, even just a little, release your hand right away. Try again.

    Usandpets has some good advice if you are a normal sized person. Both my daughter and I are'jockey sized' super petites. So I learned my technique for bridling fast for short people from a groom on the race track. Different techniques for different heights :)
