Horse Tilting Heads

Good Morning! I'm having a little issue with my horses. They tilt their heads to the inside when I'm riding down the rail of the arena. Sometimes they'll turn, as if they're heading to the middle of the arena, other times, they will just continue looking inside. It's to the point where their necks will be curved towards the inside of the arena. Because they're both doing this, I'm assuming it has to be something I'm doing to cause it. Insight? Advice on how to fix it? Thanks!

Best advice is work with a trainer who can tell you what you are doing to cause this. Could be slight overuse of the inside rein, too much weight in one seatbone over the other, too much outside leg at the shoulder, etc. because there are so many things it could be, your best bet is to take a few lessons with a trainer who can help you fix whatever is causing the issue.

I know that a mare I used to ride would do that whenever she needed her teeth floated. I've also seen horses do that when a rider rides only using the reins and never use their leg aids. Try using your inside leg to push them to the outside so they bend to your leg. Good luck!

Maybe you could have someone take a video of you riding while its happening; perhaps using youtube, or whatever. Maybe if we could see it~
