Why not just take it off before you put the bridle on? Or put it on over the bridle if you need it on a trail or a show?

Just wondering....

I can see where this would come in handy..When we're at shows, some of the horses would never be able to get their bridles on if they didn't have tie/down nosebands on. I've seen quite a few horses who anticipated being let go after the halter comes off (bad, but I've seen it happen), even if they're all tacked up. I've fixed it with the horses I ride, but a few of the horses I've seen needed to have something on their head or they wouldn't stand (let alone stand still) to be bridled. I haven't watched the video to comment, just wanted to give an example as to why.(:

wow that was interesting, though I think I would rather just teach my horse to stand still for the bridle instead of taking the halter off afterwards. I don't think I would like horse slobber all over my halter if it doesn't have to be.

My two horse Apache and Sammy are my world
along with our dogs Patch and Bear.

I've found it's actually easier and less stressful on young horses to put the bridle on underneath the halter to begin with, that way I don't have to put anything in the horse's mouth that I don't need.


Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

I agree all the horses I train are taught to stand still no matter what.

And yes why not put the bridle on under the halter??

Thats what I do

Well, it's obviously not as a full time fix (because I'd get pretty annoyed, pretty quick lol), but as something to fall back on while fixing it maybe? I just use a lead around the neck near the poll..but to each their own.
As for the bridle under the halter..Since we don't tie with bits in (have had incidents with it in the past), it would be a bit difficult to put the halter over the bridle..

ROFL - that's exactly the same way I learned (in 7th grade) to take off a bra while keeping my shirt on. And, as far as I can tell from these comments, much for the same reason...

I agree, it's a very good idea to teach your horse how to stand still.

I use this trick when I need to put a bridle on a horse that is not trained. That way I don't risk the horse taking off between taking off the halter and putting on the bridle.
