Most horses sweat more in the front than the back. This is because there are more prominent blood vessels on the shoulder/chest/neck area than the hind quarter, although the big vessels under the hind legs can get quite sweaty as well.
The only way to see if a horse is working by sweat really is by comparing the amount, keeping the temperature of the day in mind. My horse, for example, will sweat more if we focus on canter work than on a day we focus on trot work, because that is more difficult for him.
