Their teeth were done today, and without sedation or incident. This guy is really good, and is also a DVM so he decides as to whether or not he feels the horse needs sedation. I checked his references thoroughly before I ever made the call. I was really impressed, he is just one of those lucky practitioners with "the touch" that calms a horse down. I learned more in an hour with him about teeth and bitting than my (coff) decade or four before it.

Rather disconcerting LOL, now we say "Niiiice" instead.

If I do not use the short dressage whip while trying to lunge him he will go out for maybe 2 circles and stop/turn and face me. Then the process starts over, with me having to talk him into going back out on the circle.

But with the short whip I can growl at him and shake the whip just slightly and keep him out on the circle.
Some people teach the horse to stop and face you. You just need to be patient. Mine is now getting better at going on the circle instead of facing me. When you have the lung whip are you keeping it behind you? If not and you are getting it forward that would tell him to stop and turn would be my guess.

Excuse me Taffy? I was giving my personal views and experience with this issue, if you have an issues with what I comment on, then please, pm me so we can talk about it. I personally would get a vet who has gone to school for dental work or if something were to go wrong or can administer sedative. I use my vet for all these things. We have had a rash of people who say they are equine dentists and many have hurt the horse because of their ignorance. I did not want the OP to go through this.

I have had several friends have bad experiences with supposed equine dentists, so it is safer to use a vet, least that is my opinion.

If this was a jab to me GS and you think....

"You have got to be joking" and
"Is this where hoof and mouth disease comes from?"

Are not polite posts, you need to get your heart off of your sleave and take a look at some of your posts to some beginner drivers, and see what not polite really is.
