Where do you put a hackamore?

A hackamore is a bitless bridle that is good for young horses or horses with sensitive mouths. Rather than a bit, it loops around the muzzle and act with pressure on the poll and the face, rather than the usually magnified pressure of a bit. A hackmore goes on a horse the same as a bridle.

What do you do if your horse wont take a bit?

Sometimes coating it in something good tasting will help. But you might want to look further. maybe the bit hurts the horse. do you pull excessively on the reins? when was the last time your horse had its teeth checked? Is the bit a harsh bit? Or just a snaffle? I ride my horses bit-less in a bosal or even their halters, and they like that more than a bridle with a bit. If you compete in English so you need a normal bridle, check out the bitless bridle. Its a bitless English looking bridle. You could also stick your finger in the SIDE of his mouth where the bit would lie (there shouldn't be teeth their. if there is, then that's probably your problem) and that should get the horse to open its mouth.

What is the difference between a bridle with no bit and a bridle with a bit?

A bit is the part of the bridle that gets put in the horse's mouth. It is usually metal. It's used for control. The reigns are connected to it. A bridle without a bit is built differently to put pressure on different pars of the horse's head to give the rider control with the reigns. Though many riders use bitless bridles for many many reasons, I like them because when my horse and I go on trail rides, we can stop and take a break and I can let my horse eat grass without the hassle of changing from bridle to halter.

What bit should you use for your horse he is 6 and stong and cant get him to lower his head when you do he lowers it all the way and you cant get him on an out line?

Try a bitless bridle. Many horses hate bits, because bits often hurt the horse. It's really hard to use a bit and NOT hurt the horse with it. Most bridles and bits use pain or the threat of pain to make a horse do something. So, I advise getting a bitless bridle and training him instead of going up a bigger, stronger (and therefore more painful) bit.
