So much about how our horse feels is indicated by sound – how does their breathing sound? Do you hear sneezes, rhythmic breaths and blowing? Or do you hear quick, short breaths, or a rhythmic breaths? How do their footfalls sound? Are they rushed, heavy and loud, or soft and steady? Can you hear their tail swish quickly or does it sway easily? Do you hear teeth grinding or the sound of licking and chewing? The devil’s in the details, as they say.
