WHAT ARE HIS EARS TELLING YOU?
The position of your horse’s ears indicates how he’s feeling in that moment. Here’s what he’s saying: ● Ears loosely out to the side — he’s just chilling. ● Ears pricked forward — what’s up? What’s going on? ● Ears pinned back flat — he means business, so it’s worth getting out of his space. ● Ears going backwards and forwards — the normal state of affairs for him, but if they’re flicking around quickly, he’s probably nervous about something. ● One ear back — he’s listening to you, but also has one ear on his surroundings. ● Ears drooping — he’s snoozy.
