First, I'd like to say that I hope everyone enjoyed their easter mods if you feel this is in the wrong section please move it, to the correct place
My horse is finally able to get back into light riding so, I have been riding him 2 days out of the week. Last week he was fine, working his hind end and going into the bit, which i'm very proud of him for and his head was fine.
Two days ago I hopped on him (saddle&bridle) and he started tossing his head a lot but, only at the walk but, when I bring him into the trot he's fine. I've had a saddle fit check on him and the saddle fits him, me not so much but, him yeah.
Today I hopped on him bareback, with his bridle on him and he did the same head tossing thing but, again only at the walk but, not the trot. I don't have him on a tight rein, I give him a loose enough rein.
After we trot for a little while, he stops the head tossing. What could this be? I am calling my vet tomorrow and will ask what he suggests. I am also going to be calling the chiropractor for him just in case.
I ran my fingers down his back, with a little bit of pressure and he showed no signs of pain, he just stood there with his ears perked up watching the 2 barn cats playing.
Also, during the walk while he's tossing his head, he doesn't pin his ears back or anything, shows no sign on pain, no bucking or anything, no trying to get me off his back.
What could this be? He doesn't do it every ride though. Please help.
