My horse gets really head shy, especially when I'm putting on his fly mask or a bonnet. I think he had some bad experiences and is just scared. Any advice to get him less shy?

I learned this one a while ago, if you brush there neck with your hand or a brush and "accidentally" gently touch his ear and keep doing that once and awhile, not to be annoying or anything, but just progress from there to rubbing a cloth gently on there ears and forehead. Good luck :)
Try to just be super calm when putting it on and also go very slow to show that it's not gonna hurt them, so even if he has had a bad experience in the past, try to make this one even better! And when they do let you put it on always reward!! Hope this helps!😊
