It depends on the situation the horse is in. If the horses ears are swiviling back and forth and moving around alot they are more than likely just listening to sounds, other horses or you.

If their ears are pinned back against their head and their teeth are bared (like a dog snarling) then they are upset or angry. Their tail may also swish around if they are angry. Horses pin their ears back as a warning to other horses or things they feel are a threat.

If both of a horses ears are pinned down backwards against his head, watch out! This means the horse is angry or very irratated and he is likely to attempt a kick or bite.

It means that the horse is angry or irritated.

Horses ears can be slanted in many different ways. If they are slanted straight to the side and just flopping there, the horse is relaxing. If they are more erect and slightly slanted in any direction, they are merely listening to something over where his ears are ponted. If they are pinned back down against their neck, touching the neck, then the horse is angry and may bite, kick, or strike.

If A Horses Ears Are Flat Against Their Head Is A Common Sign Of Anger And Be Threatend. If The Horses Ears Are Just Swiveled Backwards They Are Listening To Whats On Their Back Or Behind Them.

If they are just slanted, he is listening to something behind it. If they are pinned against the head however, he is mad.

slightly slanted is listening, slanted all the way back means aggression. they may bite, kick, or react harshly.

horses often show their feelings by moving their ears, if the ears are forward: the horse is interested or exited in something. if the ears are slanted back or twitching: the horse is relaxed and listening to what is around him. if the ears are flat back: the horse is angry.
