What is a flagged tail?

A flagged tail is one that is being held high, above the level of the back. It's more obvious in Arabians and Saddlebreds, because they have naturally higher tails.

A horse that is flagging his tail is excited and keyed up, and often about to run - it's a playful gesture, but can indicate they're not paying attention.
