In addition to being sort of bad at being bridled, he gets anxious about being unbridled. I want to take the bit out slowly so it doesn't bang his teeth but the second I take his ears out of the bridle, he jerks back quickly to get the bit out. I'll hold it a certain way so it isn't totally ripped out of his mouth but it still clicks against his teeth harder than I want. I've taken it slowly. I'll unbuckle the throat latch. If he gets antsy, I stop and wait until he calms down before unbuckling the chin strap. If he gets antsy again, I will wait til he is calm before taking the bridle off... It seems like this isn't entirely working either since he still steps back and tries to pull his head quickly out of the bridle.
Any ideas or suggestions?
