I have a horse that takes the bridle fine but when unbridling sge just won't let go of the bit. When I give her time and she opens her mouth when I start lowering the bit she closes it and bangs her teeth. I have been working to solve this for some time but not making any progress.
A friend suggested putting a finger in her mouth which helped that day but then today it didn't work.
Last year my instructor thought I was doing something wrong but she had the same issue with her just not letting go of the bit and relaxing.
Any tips appreciated.
