Cantering Horse High Blowing - YouTube

If it is, I've known many horses breath like this (I've always known it as high breathing), and found it tends to be in horses that are more excitable. I used to school a big thoroughbred gelding that used to high breathe in canter, every stride was a big snort, and he was a pretty successful eventer in his day.

If it isn't that, it might be worth getting him scoped after all. What breed is he? I'm only asking as I know roaring is more common in Thoroughbreds, and it generally makes itself known at gallop.
I kind of thought most horses sounded like this when cantering? I know my current two do. The first (and only) time I actually cantered my 3 yr old out on the trail he sounded like this. I'm pretty sure his momma does too. Now I will have to pay more attention!
