Find It on the No Worries Club: Horse Lowers Head to the Ground When Being Ridden

A No Worries Club member asks Clinton: I have a horse that when doing the Cruising Lesson at the trot pushes his head to the ground. I don’t understand why he does it or how to fix it. He isn’t opening his mouth or breaking gait, he just shoves his nose in the dirt. He has never done this before. When doing the lesson, he is on a very loose rein — the reins bounce in the breeze. Is he daring me to touch the reins, or is this disrespectfulness? How do I fix it?

Listen to Clinton’s answer by logging on to the Downunder Horsemanship app or the No Worries Club website. Go to the Clinton’s Q&A video category and select the video “Horse Lowers Head to the Ground When Doing the Cruising Lesson.”
