A martingale wouldn't work as it encorages the horse to lower his head, which is not what you want.. You could try a market Harbor (sp?) which you can pick up for about $30AUD or make your own.. Either works well and will encorage your horse to keep his head higher.. Keep your reins tighter than normal, but your horse may drag on the bit a little, so you could change it to something harsher such as a pelham, but only use whats within ur capabilities.. Also have some lessons with an english rider, preferably dressage so you can learn balance your horse as he comes up higher and starts to engage in him back end and gains impulsion.. Tell me how everything goes!! Hope this helps!!
