I've recently purchesed a horse, who since moving has developed some problems the main one being he has head shakers syndrome
To which I thought was not so sevre but his behaviour is disgracefull that im not sure weather its down to headshakers or pure naughtiness
He's as placid as anything in the stable, but as soon as you bring him out for light work : ie
Short lunge with just the headcollar he will walk for about 3 mins ask to trot he turns faces me ears go back charges at me and rears....very frightening, I don't move just stand and ask him to do it again to which he does the same then gallops off on the lunge same on the other rein that's if we get past walk! Before he keeps stoping!
Ridden I really do not attemt I figure if I have no control on the lunge its going to be worse on his back all I want him to do is a little small excercise to keep him going until sept I just can't fathem out weather its naughtiness or pain!
He's not a vigerious up down toss head shaker he t shakes to the side and can nip if your un awares
Im just lost
I have a standard bred just turned 5 who is progressing very well and cantering but just can't get him to collect up with out pacing so 2 totally diffrent types of horses
