    Yes, those photos were completely helpful. It reminds me of a book that I've got that teaches ground driving that way. When I rode Saddlebreds we did the exact same things, I don't know why it didn't occur to me to carry it over into English. *duh*
    Thanks bunches!

    Rearing and flipping is real dangerous and is the one thing that most professionals won't deal with. It is purely an emotional thing--total lack of control of emotions-- and can only be fixed by un-doing the memories and teaching control of emotions. Desensitizing to the extreme--but it starts real small and builds--showing the horse that they will not die and be eaten over and over again with lots of different things.

    Be careful as this behaviour can and will get you hurt or worse.

    I would use a different training method for a headset. I break mules and horses and to get their heads set just apply pressure to the bit. When they put it down , even a little bit, release. They learn pretty fast. Not to scare you even worse or anything but my friend did this to her gelding only when he flipped his poll hit the ground and it killed him.
