I am working on the head throwing. I give them something to do and they stop the head throwing most of the time. They are only doing that because they are trying to be scary so I won't do that. We both know better ;)
Golley's issue with the head throwing is his bridle. But we are getting him a new one ASAP too.
Thank you for the advice everyone!
Yea, my horses know the area, just not the horses - that is my main issue. But they are usually really good about that. Once I give them a job to do, they hardly even look at the other horses.
In addition to the dentist, has either horse been checked by a chiropractor? That can cause head throwing issues.
How about saddle fit? That can cause it too.
Of course, we want to make sure there isn't a pain issue behind the head throwing, before we attribute it to a behavior problem.
