Puting your finger in her mouth is another little trick to get her to open her mouth. Put your thumb in her mouth where there are no teeth and place pressure on her tounge/wiggle you thumb around. It sounds odd, but it works. Be ready to gently put the bridal and bit on once she opens her mouth and give her LOTS of praise. Eventually she will be easier to bridal up.
usandpets also has a good idea as well.
Good luck! :)
There is one principle that should never be abandoned, namely, that the rider must first learn to control himself before he can control his horse. This is the basic, most important principle to be preserved in equitation - Alois Podhajsky
