How often should I get my horses’ teeth checked?

Young horses teeth grow at a faster rate than older, mature horses therefore we would recommend 6 month check -ups from 3 years of age to around 8 years when the interval can then be extended to 9 or 12 months depending on the horse and its individual circumstances. Older horses should be checked at least once a year, even if less work is required due to reduced growth, to check for any loose or damaged teeth.
