How often do you float your horse's teeth?

The owner I'm buying from says they do it yearly.
How often do you?

Yearly. But my older horses will start having it done every 6 months if they need it.

I have my horses teeth checked once a year when the Vet comes out to draw blood for Coggins. They have not needed it done every year. I would say it depends on the horse but I go by what my Vet tells me.

I do the same as lonearrow, it usually ends up on average about every 2yrs really. But ideally you should have it done yearly, and Ive heard in Minis every 6months as well as in older horses. Your vet can best advise you on that.

I too get mine done yearly, it is very nice to have the piece of mind plus my equine dentist is REALLY busy and goes to Florida (with the circuit) during the winter, so I would hate to have an emergency and be unable to get him. Plus I always have someone ready to be riddin and need thier wolf teeth pulled.

Yeah, they avg every 2 years for mine, too. More frequently the older they get. And it also just depends on the horse.

thanks everyone, I was thinking about every other year but like most of you said your vet would know best!
