Question
hello sir. is it possible to figure out if the horses has soft jaws or not by looking at them, touching their lips and jaws, placing our hand in their mouth?

Answer
hi -- no,  i have never heard that horses have soft jaws. i think you mean sore jaws. when a horse has a problem with their jaws, they will display it to you. act like there teeth are bothering them and funny acting when you put the bit in their  mouth.  thanks ED HESS

Experience: Licensed trainer for over 30 yrs. Have had lots of winners in all different types of races - from bottom claimers to top quality stakes winners. My best money winner was Aristocratic Cross (multiple stakes winner). My best claiming horse was Navajo Family, winner of 12 races in one year. I still enjoy racing a modest stable of horses each year.
