    How serious is it if a horse is a roarer? Does it prevent them from doing certain disciplines like jumping? Or is it just a minor problem for most horses?

    That would depend on the cause of the roaring & only a scope can tell you that. High demand sports could have a horse struggling for enough air.
    I knew a Saddelbred that actually dropped during a lesson due to roaring & not enough air. Two surgeries later she was OK but could no longer perform with her head high & flexed but she was fine for regular riding where she could hold her head as she needed.
