Have you ever tried one of these? A nose net. My friend has a thoroughbred that had that problem. Since buying one of these or atleast one similar, her chap has been a changed horse. No more head shaking and she's returned to being able to have fun riding again. I'm not saying that this will definatley solve your problem, but could be worth a try. :)

I really can't understand what you're saying.
Are you saying she tosses her head?

I was really confused. Does she have her wolf teeth or not? Did you ride this mare before you bought her. Not to dicurage you but you may be using your reins too much (hurting the horses mouth) and May not be using enough leg. Just a seggestion.

WHen does she shake her head? All the time or only when being ridden?
