Where is this noise coming from? His mouth? Horses can't regurgitate, so i'm not sure how they could literally burp.

I`m with sugars mum here, some horses don`t even need to grab hold of something to be able to windsuck. We have a windsucker here that makes a burping noise when he windsucks.

Default burp

well i haven't seen him windsuck but the noise will hapen when he's standing still so abit worried. I understand that horses cant regurgetate so hope its nothing bad.

if it is wind sucking is there a way to stop it before it becomes a big problem with a collar n all....????

Guys, how can a horse windsuck whilst ridden or 'going spaz'?

Maybe consulting a vet would be best. Because unless you find the cause of the issue, or see him windsucking, there's not much point putting on a collar.

There's a vet show on on the weekends and they had a horse on that was doing something similar. For the life of me I can't remember what it was though x__x

But yeah, I agree with Cornflower. Ringing your vet would be the best way to go

I dont know much about it, but could it possibly be roaring? Is roaring only when exercising? Or possibly an infection?

Because some horses don't need to grab onto anything to windsuck, they just suck in air regardless of what they are doing!!
