Ear shots of my mare:
I don't have any pictures of her with her ears turned around to me. She almost never does it. Even when I sing (badly).
This is as close as she comes - in an arena, when she is feeling a little pissy about overtaking our gelding and I'm asking her to ease off the pace:
I think the arena bores her so she turns her ear because there isn't anything else to do. With an empty trail ahead of her...nope. Ain't happening. However, she is very aware of my seat, my legs and the reins.
