Head shaking while being ridden
A friend of mine just bought a Hungarian warmblood. He is 5yrs old and green broke. She bought him sight unseen from another friend of mine through video.
As a two year old he cut his hind leg in a fence (grass being greener on the other side) the cut left a nasty bump on his cannon and the vet thinks maybe some kind of other damage but can't really say.
He is sound to jump and has never really been lame. Just a few days after it became infected. That was 3 yrs ago that this accident happened.
He has a great temperment and other than the odd buck when fresh he is fine to ride. He can jump the moon and that is what sold him to my friend. His knees are text book perfect.
Now the problem. The sale videos only had a small clip of him tossing his head and I know the friends who took it and they would not doctor it so that is not the problem. I know this horse as I have seen him since he was a yearling and he had no issues.
His new owner noticed him tossing his head when she first rode him after he arrived at her place.
He does it now whenever he is ridden, even with different riders. Saddles have been changed, bridles changed. bits switched, different pads, you name it everything.
Lungeing with tack, without, free lungeing with and without tack. Everything.
She just had her vet out to do a complete exam and he has no soreness anywhere. Back, legs, whithers, teeth have been checked. You name it full run up.
She is now to the point of defeat and not knowing what to do.
I am posting a link to his video from yesterday that the vet took.
With all this does anyone have any ideas?????

She really likes this horse and does not wish to give him up without it being her last resort.
He is wtc and jumping but he is very green so should go back to being flatted.
