[RC] Biting horse - heidi larson

when I did the 3-day Clinton Anderson Clinic, he talked about a horse that bit 
when being girthed.  He watched her out of the corner of his eye and when she 
started towards him with her mouth, his elbow just "accidentally" jumped up and 
hit her in the mouth!  He continued on with what he was doing and pretended 
nothing had happened. He had to do this a couple of times and she quit.  I have 
an older gelding that was bitey and I did something similar - I was riding with 
my son who was about 4 or 5 and he was on in front of me, he was tired of 
riding and wanted to get down and walk and my horse casually leaned forward to 
bite my son on the head and before I even thought I punched him in the bottom 
of his jaw.  He walked along a few more steps, leaned forward like he was 
thinking about it again and then changed his mind.  I don't think he really 
knew what hit him!

I am having a
problem with a horse that has bitten people several times
when they are standing?  near her with their backs
turned and she is tied. She means business because her ears
are back. I want to wallop her in the face, but know I
should not.??  By the time you can get her untied
and jerked around as punishment, the time frame for
punishment has about run out. I would like to hear from
anyone with similar past experiences.?  Thanks,?
