Thunder thighs.

If the sound you are speaking of is what I think you are speaking of, itís caused from the upper part of the rear legs rubbing together between the legs. Until the horse sweats just a bit in that area, it makes that sound. Stallions, mares and geldings all make that sound when they first begin to trot until they begin to sweat.

That's the thing though, mares DO NOT make the sound. I personally have not ridden enough stallions to know, but the two I have ridden did not make the sound. I have only ever heard geldings make the sound in 26 years of being around horses.

Stallions do it too
