I love this horse’s ears – the way they prick up when something’s caught his attention, or he’s excited about his work. The way they look very long when you stand in front of him, but they are actually quite short when you’re in the saddle. The little black tips at the top of them
There’s nothing I love more than the sight of those two fluffy ears pricked all the way forward when I’m sitting in the saddle – it tells me he’s happy, motivated to work (or potentially plotting to find something to buck me off at)
And I love how they flick back and forward when he’s in ‘work mode’ – it’s his way of telling me he’s motivated, but listening to me, working with me.
The ears of a horse can tell you a lot
