I've read all the post on putting the bit in your horses mouth by putting your thumb in the corner and opening the mouth and sliding it in while holding his head lower with your right arm.
Here's my problem, he's 5 and has been in training for about 3 months (3 days a week) He fights it, after its in he's fine. He's head is up in the air or on the ground and I'm having a hard time keeping up with his head.
I didn't mention that he's 18.2 hands. I've tried the molasses once. I put it on the bit stuck my thumb in his mouth to get him to open and some how I had a bitten finger. He's bit is 6.5" snaffle so its big for my hands to begin with. I just can't figure out how anyone can get their horse to just suck the bit in their mouth.
I'm up for any advice.
