When I barrel race, my horse keeps tossing his head and running sideways. I use a tie down on him sometimes, but not all the time. Any ideas on why he does this or what to do?

My horse does the same thing. But only around the first barrel.
that could be the problem!
@runningshorses no, next time the vet is out I will have her check and see if he needs them done!
Have you got his teeth done? Recently
