    She is getting her teeth done this Sunday. Hopefully she will try to be nice to the dentist. Where I'm agisting her the bloke that owns the land said that the chewing, head throwing ect is from her teeth so hopefully it will be a nicer ride after. Thanks for the advice!

    Let us know how it goes.
    I think everyone who has had a horse has gone through some sort of confidence issue at some time. I had a bad fall and was injured enough I couldn't ride for 3 months last year. The first time I got on I was scared to death and could only stay on for a short time.
    If nothing else you need to at least get her tacked up and sit on her. Just sitting helps a lot. Then take a few steps and a few more and pretty soon you've gone a mile. Time in the saddle is the best cure for what ails you

    Well I was all set and was going to ride her then somepeople lefted there horses in the arena, and there was no way I was going to ride with other horses around. So I just groomed her and stuff then went. Mum said I could ride tomorrow though so I'm happy about that, that's if he has moved is horses by then.

    How can you tell if a horse needs their teeth floated? I bought mine two months ago and she does funny things with her heads when she's not fighting me on other stuff. I don't know when it was last done. How often should it be done and is it done by a vet?

    Well I really don't know what to say. Just take a deep breath I guess.lol. I'm so sorry i'm not much of a help. I've never really had confidence issues, which has sometimes gotten me into trouble.lol. Just remember that your in control and your the leader. Sometimes if I feel a little weird or whatever I just think that. Also the teeth could have been a problem. Please tell us how that's going.

    Some typical signs are dropping grain when eating, head tossing while eating and also with the bit, sensitivity when brushing around the jaw... those are the main things I have noticed. Usually a vet or an equine dentist does it. A vet should be able to tell you if your horse's teeth need to be done.

    As for how often -- it depends on the horse and their lifestyle. Anywhere from basically never (or like every 5 years, or depending on age) to three times a year. The more forage and free grazing that a horse does, typically the less often they need their teeth done. The more they live off of grain, the more often they need it.
