To Make a Horse Stand – I never broke a horse to stand but have seen the “punchers” here do it. They take a “spade mouth” bit or a severe curb bit with strong reins and just turn the horse loose; he steps on the reins and jerks himself a few times until he is afraid to move. After he becomes accustomed to standing when left the “spade mouth” is not used. Some horses learn to hold their heads to one side so as not to step on the reins and to make such stand, tie them to a post.
