Big day tomorrow!

My Saddlebred Dusty is having his teeth floated tomorrow! Hope this fixes his head tossing poor behavior issues! Pray for us... If this doesn't correct his issues I don't know what else to do...

I will pray for you, but you have to pray for me too! I'm taking my mare in next week. :)

Yes. She isn't having noticeable behavioral problems, but it will be interesting to see if there are any changes in her personality afterwards.

Hopefully it fixes things! My gelding was like that for ages but just stopped one day, before I had his teeth done.
What sort of bridle and bit does dusty have? Just thinking as I changed mitchs bridle and bit and he changed quickly.

Swapped him from a Tom thumb his previous owner used to a snaffle. Didn't help much.

Good luck tomorrow! If it does turn out that he has teeth issues and they were the root of the problem, he may still exhibit some of that behavior afterwards for awhile out of habit until he realizes he's no longer in pain.

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

Good luck! Both of my horses were like completely different animals after having their teeth done. When everything else is ruled out, having teeth done (and done regularly) can be like a miracle.

If you are going to teach a horse something and have a good relationship, you don't make him learn it - you let him learn it.
