Wind problem, Breathing with mouth!
My horse have a problem when breathing under training, that happends only when he peform up to 100%..See this clip and turn the sound up.

Have anybody seen something like this? For me it feels like he have what they call dorsal displacement of the soft palate (DDSP) or something similar.. I need help too prevent that happening, any suggestion?

The horse is an Norwegian cold blood trotter, 5 years of age with name Jesper

Hmm could he be huffy puffy from working a long time? or did you just take him out?

I'm stumped!

He had done some training in front of that happening. Just before i jumped off the sulkey for making film. He had just finished the last interval in the training..4*ca 250 meters a little uphill

definitely sounds like your horse is just displacing. Talk to your vet, and if there's a clinic nearby, i'd go have either tie-back, tie-forward, or laser procedure done. Considering, it's a fairly cheap and very easy procedure, and they only about 2 weeks off from it. It's usually (depending which one you do) about an 800-1200$ procedure, depending on which you do, where you're located, your vets, etc, etc.
