I need some advice/tips on how to get my horse to take a bit. I ride her now with a hackamore but I would much rather ride with a bit. Every time I try to put a bit in her mouth she will raise her head so that I can not get to her. I have no problem putting the bridle with the hackamore on her it is just when there is a bit attached to the bridle. Can anyone tell me what I can do to get her out of this.
PS. She was like this when I got her so I don't know what was done to her in early training that caused this reaction to a bit.
Thanks in advance.
