I moved to a new barn with a new trainer with all new knowledge.
I have a horse whom until yesterday was deathly afraid of the headstall. I have had many professional trainers give me advice but yesterday was different. The trainer put a pan of grain on the ground letting my horse go in for a bite while at the same time putting the bit in his mouth then while my horse was so happy with the taste of the grain she put it over his ears by tilting the ears one by one starting with the off side forward and guiding the headstall over without tutching the ears at all witch I thought was almost impossible when it came to my very large eared horse. Now that the trainer had gotten the headstall on with no complaints from my horse she slowly took it off sliding it down his nose instead of pulling if forward off of his face and then down out of his mouth. Now putting it back on the second time without the grain: Rubbing it on his face a little bit being gentle then standing on the left side of the horse with the bridle in her left hand under the nose and the right hand ebove my horses ears coaxing his head down a bit she put the headstall on my horses nose so that either side of the headstall was on either side of his nose then sliding the headstall up his face and then grabbing it with her right hand and slidingg it up his face and then over the ears without any trouble she did this a couple more times and then handed it to my where I proseeded to do this for another 20 minutes without any head throughing or complaints from my horse he even stuck his nose out in want of the headstall a few time Ahhh I'm so happy! The one thing she said that stuck in my head and really clicked was "He doesn't mind so much if he doesn't have to see it". My horse has obviously been abused in the past probably being hit in the face or something but neither of us have to be reminded of that anymore!
I have a YouTube channel and will be making a step by step video of what I had done the previpous few weeks before the bridling and how exactly a now bridle him and will post it soon!
Sorry for the very unorganized post but I just thought id blurt this out just in case it could help somebody!
