Q: My horse tosses his head constantly. I had the veterinarian out, and she says his teeth are fine. I even asked a trainer to help me find a comfortable bit and adjust my horse’s headstall, but he still tosses his head. Help!

My personal experience was a trainer with hard hands! Fired her butt! Horse was fine after that!

I would also look into first a tooth problem, bit problem or medical issue!

My 5 year old Ten. Walker ha started doing this. However, the other day I tried Calm before I rode him and he started throwing his head anyway. So I had a friend just come and sit in the center of the round pen that I ride in. Well that made a considerable difference and it lessened. He has blue eyes so I though it might be the light but having that person in the pen made the biggest difference. What do you think about that? What advise would you give ?

this will give me something to start with when my gelding starts head tossing. I am considering a martingale so he doesn't decide to buck. He's 9yr old and greenbroke. I'm a one legged man who can't seem to keep up with training horses anymore (&57 yr.old), this is gonna take some time, I fear. Thoughts? Just keep riding him, more is better, I think. My daughter thinks this horse will get unruly and I'll get hurt. hmmm
