Do horses pant?

Not normally.

Dogs pant because they don't sweat. Horses do not naturally pant. Panting in a horse is a sign of severe heat exhaustion or heat stroke. Also, horses do not loll their tongues out - if they do, it's a sign of either mouth discomfort or in rare cases nerve damage can cause the tongue to "fall out" when the animal is relaxed.
