I found that when any horse gets to trying to drag me off...I let them...only
in a circle.
I just grab the cheek piece on the halter and bend their head and make em' do
lots of circles...then I trade sides (you don't want them to be one sided)
and do the same amout of circles on the other side...I have found that after
a couple of times as soon as they feel me grabbing the cheek piece they slow
down or stop which ever I asked for.
Alot of times I will make them trot in some small circles...not to many
then I make em' back up a few steps, don't jerk on the lead or this will make
him keep his head up, harder to control.
In fact take some time and teach him to drop his head all the way to the
ground when you tell him to...to do this put your hand on his poll and push
when he responds with the smallest downward motion reward him with a release
of the pressure and maybe a treat...he will then raise his head higher...put
the same amout of pressure and do it again...If he lifts his head higher
don't put more pressure on, use the same amount of pressure...I give and
release, push relax push relax...
pretty soon he will relax and start dropping his head. I have Epic where I
can push right in ft. of the saddle while I am on him and he will drop his
head all the way to the ground.
If you have the Linda Tellington Jones book she has great excersises to help
with leading too.
