I'm not a horse trainer so I really don't know what to tell you. I watch my big guy's ears and his eyes for signs he is getting ready to throw a free buck out in the field. Not knowing a tremendous amount about horses I think it means he is happy and trying to play with me. I suppose it could be a dominance thing, viewing me as a herd member rather than as the leader and maybe ground manners are an issue.
