Hi ... I am a novice rider. Been riding a little since 2006. I'm not a young girl ... late 40s. This one horse I've ridden pretty much exclusively since 2006 is great. Although she has a strange habit (?)
When we are in the ring and trotting, all is fine. When I urge her to gallop she hesitates, drops her head to the ground (or as close as she can get ... but it's ALL the way down) and then THROWS her head back and then gallops. What??? Is this just a behavior? Is her vision impaired? It's all good from there until I tell her to stop or whatever. Just curious ... and I'm not a good enough rider to know what's going on. Thanks!
