Find It on the No Worries Club: Solving a Horse’s Head-Tossing Issue

There’s nothing more distracting than a horse that frequently throws his head up in the air, dragging the reins through his rider’s hands. A horse that constantly tosses his head has one of a few things going on. He might have a dental issue and the bit could be irritating him and making him feel uncomfortable. Before you do anything else, you should have his teeth looked at by an equine dentist and get any issues fixed.

After you’ve ruled out a dental issue, you’re looking at one of three possible causes:

  1. A heavy-handed rider
  2. The horse is sorry-broke
  3. A bad attitude

Read more of what Clinton has to say about correcting a horse with a head-tossing issue in the article, “Address Head Tossing,” in the winter 2017 edition of the No Worries Journal. The article is available to read on the No Worries Club website or the Downunder Horsemanship app.

A complete library of our quarterly No Worries Journals is available for viewing and downloading on the No Worries Club website and the Downunder Horsemanship app. If you’re not a club member, learn more about the many benefits of being a club member and join our community on our website.
