Does anyone else's horse snort during the canter

Sometimes my horse snorts when I canter him. It's with almost every stride...snort...snort...snort. It's definitely not when he inhales. And he doesn't do it all the time. Anyone else experienced this?

yep, Sonny does that ALLLLLL the time in a canter...you can't prevent him from doing it.

Does your horse love to canter? Sonny's problem is that he absolutely LOVES to canter so he gets overly excited, which is causing the "huffing" during the canter.
It's also a TB thing...most TBs, I've noticed snort while cantering, and since most Paints have TB blood in, that also explains why Sonny is snorting.

It's nothing to worry about...we mentioned that to the vet when I had the pre-purcahse done and she said it was normal for some horses

Sometimes my horse does it, but not often. ;)
But yeah, some horses just do it, can't stop 'em.

Ride more, worry less.

Thanks for the responses. I've heard of "roaring" in horses, but I didn't think that was what was going on here. Good to know Cody's behavior is nothing unique :)

Benny does it.

I give him a pat when he does under saddle because I call it "getting the butterfly's out" ...

But I'm weird like that 8)

LOL! That reminded me of a time when my friend was watching Cody longe. He was having one of his "male days" where air in his sheath was making noise when he trotted. She asked what was wrong with my horse's stomach, and I had to explain to her that it wasn't his stomach making the noise

Dixie does it all the time, and Lucky only does it when he's excited. :) I think its cute. It makes me think of race horses.
