A few weeks ago my vet came out for a routine dental exam and shots. My 5YO warmblood mare wasn’t showing any issues and has always been super easy to bridle and she has always been super light in the bridle as well. The only thing with her is that she’s always been awful about administering oral meds, or getting a dental exam/ float.
About 2.5 weeks ago now she got a few shots on both sides of her neck as well as a few blood draws on each side and she had her teeth floated. She essentially had the entire next week off, since I sprained my ankle and had to leave town for a funeral. I started lightly riding her about a week after and she is acting really strange about her mouth. I can still bridle her fine but she’s gaping her mouth, acting super stiff, crunching the bit which is super unlike her. I figured she might still be sore but it’s been a little while and she still seems super uncomfortable about her mouth. Has anyone had this?
