Question my horse all of a sudden diffrent?

Ok well my hotse Curly just started having this thing if you try to scratch her nose or fave she pins her ears back and sometimes even trys to nip you... This started when I wasn't able to go out to my barn for like 2 weeks.. Once I got back I just thought it was maybe just because I haven't been working with her for a wile and it would just go away.... I have been for a month and half to 2 mothes and it has'nt changed...I don't think she is in pain or hurt there, I had my trainer check her and he said she looked fine. I don't know whats wrong... Does anyone have any ideas what it could be?

She doesn't like it. Quit doing it. If I was doing something aggravating to you, would you like it if I kept doing it?

She is telling you to stop it. Stop it.

I knew but before she would put her nose or her face aginst your hand till you would pet her... She wouldn't just one day decide she didn't like something because she used to like it! NVM I guess it's hard to say anything since you don't know MY horse...

Shes getting upset if you touch her anywhere on the face? Even with a soft brush or something like that?

My first thought was that maybe her teeth are sharp. Did your trainer look in her mouth? Sometimes if a horse has bad teeth they prefer not to be touched on the face to avoid putting pressure on the sharp tooth.

There's always the possibility that she just prefers to have her face left alone and doesn't like to be pet.

Ever just in a mood when you don't want to be touched? My mare loves to be scratched somewhere one day and the next couldn't be bothered or doesn't want to be touched there. If she is cranky suddenly when being touched all over her body get check checked for lymes disease esp. If you ride frequently in wooded or tick prone areas.
