Try boiling them, let them sit in boiling water for about 20 minutes or so and then try popping them.

I had extremely good success soaking horns in a tub of water. It has been my preferred method. Especially in warm weather it works pretty quick. Make sure you clean the horns afterwards with fresh water and let them sit out in the fresh air for the smell to dissapate. Good luck!
