Im riding a new horse and he walks when you put his bridle on. He also tosses his head and it can be hard to get a hold on him since he's about 16 hands. When I go to bridle him I put his halter around his neck, but once he starts walking out of the cross tie this still doesnt give me control. Is it okay to attach his lead rope to the halter when its around his neck?
Also, what are some ways to get him to stand still, and bring him under control if he starts walking? Does turning him around and walking him back into the cross tie work?
Thanks, he's a very new horse for me and I want to be able to bridle him. Any tips are appreciated
