Is it normal that my horse, which is new to the barn, goes crazy when I put it in his field? He gallops back and forth and looks very curious

hey, he's probably just very excited to be outside, I know once I feed my horse and brush him and lead him back to his paddock he gets excited, just keep an eye on him just in case he hurts himself
If he isn’t used to being in a big field or is only turned out for a little bit out of the day i wouldn’t worry about, he’s probably just stretching his legs! I would start to be concerned if he’s running to the point of exhaustion though- this could lead to other health problems
