The horse I exercise for some people, Chip, has been tossing his head when I ask him to turn left. It seems to be something that pains him, but may just be stubbornness, with turning left, and I was wondering what you all thought it could be. He moves his neck to the left fine, and he'll do a HALF circle to the left but as soon as it comes to closing the circle he tosses his head and goes sharply right. Could a horse do this if his teeth need to be done? His legs look good.
He has also dropped his head, pulling on the bit HARD (knocking me off balance when riding him english) while we're canter/loping. Not sure if that's related or not.
I don't know what else to add.. ask questions.. heehee any help is appreciated.
