Well done, sounds like someone taught you how to bridle and unbridle a horse correctly.

Where I live, it is normally referred to as a headstall, bit or no bit. I call it a bridle, but I also trot & canter my horse, regardless of saddle type. I use my one-ear headstall but bridle my horse. What people call things seems to vary with location and original background...

Yeah I was sort of wondering what the "before" was.

I didn't mean to start a debate, it looks like this is a regionally specific naming things. I'll enjoy my terms, y'all enjoy yours.

I'll make a video about how I now put the headstall on my horse. Before I was just doing it like everyone ells at my barn does it but this new way even though it takes longer is GREAT!

Wellll... the definition is "part of a bridle that fits around a horse's head". ;) I've always called anything with a bit and reins a bridle.

The sensitivity of the internet baffles me.
