Two threads in one day? Ugh so many questions..

Anyways, I was at a show last weekend with my mare and we were in our last class of the entire event, costume. We were told to walk around the arena with our horses, I wasn't mounted and she seemed to be getting prancy (probably because she was covered in balloons and tissue paper, so scary...) After we were told to line up facing the bleachers, so I brought her over there and blah blah blah waiting, explaining costumes and I see her stretching her head out and chewing and opening her mouth, I tried just giving her a tug on the lead so she'd stand like a normal pony but she kept a- 'chewin. Any ideas what was happening? I'm not concerned, just wanting to learn. :)

Also, she was in a fleece stable sheet covered in balloons and tissue paper like I said before and it was about 25-29 degrees Celsius outside according to my phone, probably a little cooler considering we were inside, but I'm not positive.

Thanks in advance! :)

I'd have wanted to make sure she didn't have a bit of balloon or streamer in her mouth.

I wouldn't think she had, the costume was made in advance and brought up over her hind end. May be though. Thanks :)

Maybe just letting out nerves without acting completely crazy. I was told that a horse chews when they are thinking and processing things/
