I've been reading some of the posts and notice that someone writes about head bobbing. It appears this is done when the horse is lame. Could someone explain why this occurs?? Also does it only occur when under saddle or when the horse is just walking around the pasture?? I've noticed a natural head bob when horses walk, is this part of head bobbing? I'm afraid I don't know to what extreme these posters are talking about for it to be considered head bobbing due to lameness issues. Is there a particular degree of bobbing that is cosidered a lame head bob? What do you call it when the horses head bobs slightly while in normal walking? Thanks, just trying to get educated and had these question after reading some posts.
