Lacey does that exact same thing! In Lacey's case I think she just trying to get a good look at both sides of the road.
It was super funny when I took her over a concrete logging bridge a few weeks ago, she went to one side, stuck her head out and down towards the water then went to the other side and did the same thing, all while walking forward! Silly mares!
When we had access to actual logging roads a few weeks ago (Lacey lives in a rather residential area, we were on vacation, haha) she showed that she HAS to be in front. If she wasn't she'd get all anxious and worried. At home on the other hand, she doesn't want to go off the property. Haha
