RE: [RC] Biting horse- be sneaky - ll cole

I agree with the general opinion. If your horse does this when tied to the trailer, you have a bit more of a problem. At this point you can leave the rope looped thru the tie so he doesn't pull back and break loose, but still assumes he is "tied". You can also hold a horseshoe nail or something similar, between your fingers as you make a fist (pointed out, of course!) and even a slight connection with his sensitive muzzle will get your "point" across!!!;) You can do this without a great flapping of arms or hands. Good luck!

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,  Julie Suhr
