Head Chucking Horse

July 1, 2018

  When a Horse tosses the Head whilst riding, there is something wrong, 100% of the times.   THE CAUSES   There can be several: Teeth Sacroiliac Bad Hands Confusion between Horse and Rider Learned helplessness or other Veterinary reasons…..   If You experience, do something about it, immediately, for it is unfair on Horses and dangerous to Riders, for the Horse just may have had enough of You at some point!!   SACROILIAC     LEARNED HELPLESSNESS     HANDS     Gaining Head submission of the Horse, to look in ‘show mode’ IS NOT achieved by pulling…..it should […]

June 17, 2014

Upside down in the Horse is can be caused by a number of things. They are:   Conformation The Personality Human leading or Riding habits often the latter………   This is one of the worst examples of a man made ‘Upside Down Neck’ on a horse and if you look at the tools of torture in this horse’s mouth, a number of things should become very evident to you.

November 10, 2013
