How does a horse use its tail to talk to humans?

A horse can use its tail to communicate with humans in many ways. For example, when a horse is experiencing pain or discomfort, it tucks its tail in tightly. However, a horse with colic may carry its tail at an unnaturally high angle away from its body. A horse swishes its tail from side to side violently when it is annoyed, whilst a particularly irritated animal may even swish it up and down, When the tail is carried high and the horse is prancing or cantering, it means the horse is in high spirits. General contentment is indicated by a tail in a relaxed state.

Can cutting a horses tail stop it from jumping?

Technically, no. However, if the tail drags the ground, the horse could step on it and cause pain in the dock/tail area, causing great discomfort for the horse. The horse may buck/kick/rear/etc. The horse should NOT step on it's tail when it lands. If it does, you should trim the tail a 2-3 inches to ensure he doesn't step on it again. My tip: If the horse cuts, he shouldn't be jumping over obstacles. If you mean leaping to cut the cow off, then his mane/tail shouldn't be so long(long enough to reach the feet). It may look nice, but it just isn't practical, sorry to disappoint. I personally do hunter-jumper/pleasure English.
