How to Bridle a Horse

Tacking up a horse takes time to master.  Here is a great clip about correctly bridling a horse.  It is usually helpful to have a visual reference and this video provides a nice demonstration.  There is one caveat, in this example the rider let her halter drop to the ground while still hooked to the cross tie.  We recommend never leaving equipment (especially ropes and halters) on the ground where someone could get caught up in them and trip.  If you would like more info about our riding school, pony club, events, or equine assisted activities please contact us at or 619-723-6202.  Happy Trails!
