Pictures lie, they capture a single instant in time and can be pretty meaningless. Especially when trying to judge an emotion.

If that is play, I would never allow it with mine.

I don't know. The pic is really too small to tell the details of the horse's eyes and nostrils.

But we happily judge a lt on the strength of a single snap shot. The only question here is what is YOUR read on this single shot, I don't want you to try and reconstruct a dinosaur from a tooth, just tell me what that frozen moment in time says to you.

Looks like she's grooming his shoulder and he's returning the favor.

Not exactly a position I'd get in, but whatever.

What FG says. It doesn't look aggressive to me.

I have no idea what this lady is doing, she might be playing but I think the horse is showing signs of aggression: from the pic I can see(it's a bit grainy) he looks very tense and his eye does not look calm at all.

I think she should stand up and do some leadership exercises with him. Standing up.

Ha, I clicked to reply before I realised it was a poll.

I will select aggression because I don't think the pony wants her there, and I think she is intentionally keeping her distance (perhaps kneeling down to feel a tendon?).
