That was interesting SueNH
The horse there looked more to be suffering from lack of blood flow to the heart maybe - certainly no sign of a panic or anxiety attack
We had a horse that was eventually found to have a tumour growing by his heart that behaved like that - though not when the girth was tightened - just would stop occasionally, stagger and almost pass out then be perfectly fine.
He was retired from riding because of it but the vets couldn't find a cause until the tumour got large enough that the blood flow was always restricted
