Horse repeatedly bobbing head behind vertical while trotting?
Lately Navigator has gotten into a habit of bobbing his head behind the vertical while we trot. It just happens quickly, like a back and forth motion, but he doesn’t pull the reins from my hands or anything. Just every couple of strides he’ll do it, loose rein or on contact, especially after we transition down from canter.
I’ll check him for soreness tomorrow before we ride, but I don’t think that’s it… I’ve never heard or seen this happening before, and I have no idea what to do. Usually I just push him forward with my seat and legs and that helps, but then he’ll usually go back to it. :-/
I’ll try to get a video of it to post, since I don’t feel like I was very clear.
