Hello Beth!

When your horse rest or is doing a small effort, his respiration is 10 to 14 inhalations, it can goes to 45 inhalations after a big effort. It becomes abnormal when his respiration is at/above 16 inhalations per minute during resting or small efforts.
Hope I could answer your question :)
