It doesn't really matter whether or not you think thats not the problem. Horses need their teeth looked at at least once a year. My gelding rode just fine, could run a barrel pattern at Mach 5, be calm and quiet all the time. Well we had his teeth looked at for any signs and he had a massive abcess that we never would have caught.

I'm not saying this is absolutely, 100% the problem....But I just want to emphasize how important it is. Some horses are so good natured and forgiving that the signs are incredibly minimal.

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

Im not saying its not the problem and I said I would look into it. What Im saying is he would have shown signs as he is not one of those forgiving horses and he hasn't. I'm not by any means saying his teeth are perfect because Im not an expert.

just a small town girl with a big town dream :]
