Why Does My Horse Carry His Head So High?

Does your horse go around with his head up? You know he is supposed to carry it lower when you ride to better support your weight and so he can move more freely, but why does he have his head up in the first place?

Good movement of a ridden horse involves much more than just the position of the head, but dropping the head and neck can have a very positive impact on the horse. It can release tension in their back, and allow them to move with a more open, swinging stride.

However, with a high headed horse, you want to consider more than just how to “get his head down.” First, consider why he may be moving this way, and you may find a different solution than pulling on the reins or using extra equipment.

In this video, we will discuss three big reasons why horses move high-headed.
