I have to second W_S. That is an excellent method for horses who are green or don't respect the bit. After he gets it figured out that the bit means stop, then you can work on the stop-back method that Sorrelhorse mentioned. That will make his stop harder and quicker, but only after he figures stop out to begin with.

^ Yup, agreed. Now that Latte has the stop down I back her after nearly every one, and it has helped with her head carriage and driving that butt under her when she stops.

Best way to stay off the mouth is to make sure they have it down from the ground first. I wouldn't even get in the saddle until they know for sure from the ground.

Like all the others have said, say the word while leading you stop they stop, you back a couple steps, they back a couple steps. EVERY SINGLE TIME YOU STOP NO MATTER WHAT. Same thing once you hit the saddle.

You'll have it in no time at all if you stay consistent.
