My horse was a rescue and he is a tad headshy. He's fine with people touching his face with their hands, but if you touch him with anything else he runs away. My problem is this - he hates the halter. I got him okay with a fly mask, but when I go out to bring him in to ride, he avoids me. He'll put his head down when I scratch his ears, but when I try to slip it over his nose, he freaks out. Once it's on his nose though he's pretty okay with it.
What can I do to help him know that the halter isn't a BAD thing?
