I have a little miss piggy!! Squealing when entering canter?

Not sure whether to think it's funny or be concerned... my little Connemara mare squeals / snorts when she enters the canter! I don't see any other issues, signs of pain, etc... but it's every single time on both sides.
Here's a video, you'll have to listen carefully... she squeals after I give her the cue to canter :

Any input is appreciated Thank you!!~

I suspect she makes the noise out of a combination of exertion and feeling good.

Her voice seems to mimic yours and to almost be answering you. Maybe it's just me seeing that.

No, I agree. I don't know if that's possible, lol, but it sounds like she's answering you in a way!
