I just dissolve my horses' dewormer in warm water and pour it over their food. Once all the liquid is soaked up, I stir it and give it to them. Works like a charm, and I don't have to fight anyone.

What if you have a horse who's a PITA to bit, or one that's retired? This would only work well if your horse is easy to bridle and bit.

You want the truth? You can't HANDLE the truth!

Google "Easy wormer", they're sold all over, about $12 >or<

Yes, the horse does need to accept a bridle

The US 'Easy wormer' kind has a hard plastic plunger that is inserted after the wormer or med is given. Only the side you insert into has a tract inside the 'bit' & the plunger pushes it all in. The bridle should be adjusted shorter than you would with a regular bit to instill the wormer/med onto the back of the tongue.

That's the type of horses this is made for.
