So now and then our horse is groaning, when he is being saddled.
Can this be a caracter thing or do horses only groan when they are really in pain?

I really do not know the history of the horse, he used to be a military horse, that is all I know.

It is a stallion.
He is strong, has a real caracter and a strong will, he is very sensitive and very easy to handle as soon as he knows who really is the boss.

Only this groaning sometimes worries me and making me wish he could talk and explain!

His digestion is good, he eats regurly and has a good appetite.
The veterinary doesn't have a answer, but the good man speaks arabic and I am not.

Horses generally aren't going to groan unless they are in pain--quite a bit of it in fact. Poor saddle fit, arthritic changes along the spine, gastric ulcers, etc could all cause pain when being saddled and ridden.

Thanks Cindy. That is clear!
