no it's normal
That's normal! Especially if it's really hot or the horse has been out of work for a while
Totally normal. Might mean he/she is a bit unfit. Try feeding electrolytes to restore salt and minerals lost in the sweat.

Sweating is totally normal and good for your horse as long as you replenish the electrolytes they lost with something like a salt lick and that you have cooled them down properly!

When horses sweat they might lose some of important minerals and salts. If u notice them being lazy or slower you might consider feeding them electrolytes. :)
Sweating is actually good for your horse because it lets their body cool off and helps with blood circulation.
