What is the best brand of helmet for the hunter ring?
OneK is amazing, best ventilated helmet, unlike Charles Owen, with no vents. Also there is a velvet one and a matte one. I have the matte one, I see the majority of people wearing this at my shows, I really recommend. Isn't too expensive either.
When I try to put the bridle on one of the horses I ride, he sticks his head up so I can't reach it. What can I do to get his head to stay down so I can put his bridle on?
I never have an issue with putting a bridle on when I use this method: I hold the bridle by the crown, which is the very top part. Place the reins over the horses head. While holding the crown, place that hand in between the horses ears. Guide the bit near the horse's mouth. If they refuse to take the bit, slide your finger into the corner of their lip and press down on their gums, they have no teeth here so it's okay to press! they should accept the bit and should not throw their head around. I never have an issue when I use this method
