My sister's pony does the same thing. (its called quidding)
He gets his teeth done routinely every 6 months and maintains his teeth fairly well between floating (not many sharp edges when he does get done)
His seems to be more of a nervous habit as opposed to dental health issues. He does it a lot less if not bothered, but if anyone is near his bucket or stall as he eats he tends to drop/fling a lot more grain.
So if its not a mouth problem it can be due to other reasons. I just like to be careful about his feed area to be sure that when he goes to pick up the grain he's dropped that there isn't any dirt or other material that he will ingest along with it.
