I went and see a horse to buy today (Q.H. Paint Gelding 9 years old). He was used like a trail horse and I noticed that his head is always DOWN and when going very slowly (slow walk) his head (not his neck... just the head) is MORE on the inside (he looks like horses in circus that they always had the head in the inside) but he is so gentle and he is ridden western with one hand... I mean he is really good horse but what I wanted to know is, WHY does he always has is head down? Is that a problem? Is that just the way he was trained?
I would appreciate your input on this!
Thank you very much
