How do you guys decide on if your horse is hurt or not

How do you guys decide on if your horse is hurt or not
Different expression in the face/eye, any swelling/tenderness/heat that is abnormal, eaten/ drunk less than normal, less droppings, just abnormal behaviour both on the ground and under saddle. My horse is very cheeky and very much in my pocket, I know he’s not right when he doesn’t follow me around and is behaving himself!
Most of the time my horse will just be acting different from her normal behavior, and every time I take her out I will walk her and check if she’s limping...... hope this helped!
