Help with head....
Today I went and rode my mare. While I was walking her she would pin her right ear and tilt her head toward the middle of the arena and she was shaking her head. What could be the problem. Ive only ever seen her do this one other time.

If she lets you, you might try to look in her ear to see if there is something in there that you can get out. If there isn't anything that you can see and she continues to do this, I would take her to the vet asap. We had a dog that would carry his head cocked off to the side with one ear dropped and come to find out, some grass burrs had gotten into his ear and were working their way through his ear drum. The vet had to put him out and dig in there to get them out.

I agree with Smrobs.. sounds like something is in her ear, and it needs to come out asap

Are you sure she didn't hear something that interested her? Or that you weren't too tight on the reigns? or it wasn't the bit pinching your horses tongue?
