    Body language question

    I'd like someone to translate why when on the trail and we pass other horses, my cute little horse arches her neck/head real tight. Why does she do this?
    Thanks so much!

    Is it possible to get a photo of her doing this? That might help to get a better explanation. Thanks!

    That is a posture horses adopt when first meeting another horse if they are unsure of their position, or want to express excitement and possibly a willingness to push for dominance. If you allowed the horses to sniff each other , nose to nose, I bet your mare would squeal and maybe strike out with her front foot. That's why it's never a good idea to allow two strange horses to "meet" on the trail.
