Yesterday I was out riding and my horse kept tossing her head straight up iv noticed this before when we leave the farm and we are riding in new teritory but it usually stops after the first few mins but yesterday she did it the entire time im wondering if this was just a nervous thing since we were on the side of a busy road or is it somthing else? Any thoughts?
Like Sunny said, without actually being there to see exactly when she is doing it and what possible causes there could be, everything we mention would just be speculation. She could be nervous or sour, or maybe you are inadvertently shortening your reins when you ride in a new place and the bit pressure is causing her to throw her head. There are so many variables to consider.
