When is a horse lathered?

Horses, like humans, sweat. A "lathered" horse is one on which the sweat has started to foam on the coat - which means it's not evaporating and not doing its job of cooling the animal. In other words, if a horse is "lathered" it should probably be rested.

Lather is most often seen under tack or harness.
