WP Headset

I show my horse in English Pleasure, and he usually has his head up. But I am wanting to try WP next year, and I will only be walking/trotting this winter (indoor is to small to lope in) so I want to teach him the headset. How can I do that?
Thank you!

What do you mean when yo say 'teach him the headset'?

Lower his head for WP classes.

Oh, okaay! That takes a little work. How used to riding with a loose rein are you?
    08-31-2011, 08:26 PM
I always ride with a loose rein .

Alright, that might make it easier. You just have to work on relaxation and keeping your horses head low. I always hated pleasure, but it's a good skill to have. I don't know what your horses attitude is like, but if he's really quiet it should be easy. Do ride western often?

He is extremely quiet. I do about once a week.

It should be fairly easy then. I would just really concentrate on relaxation, and getting him to lower his head

Okay! Thank you.

Also, he doesn't have a mane or tail, should I put mane and tail extentions on him?
