This is my first loan, what do you all think?




He is an English Arab named Arnie, he has fantastic paces but needs to lose some weight promptly.
Sadly he as a bad habit of nipping/biting, does anyone have any suggestions on how to stop him from doing this, even a gradual deterent? After all he is 12 and may take some time.
Thankyou.

when making a url for a pic take away the [img] at both ends and everyone can just click on it from there on.

Thankyou everyone.

As I have mentioned previously, I am still undertaking lessons after a lengthy break in the saddle and have been searching for the perfect horse share in my area. I have so much to learn regarding stable management etc........I placed an advert in my local newspaper and was overwhelmed with responses, but this is the fella I fell for, isn't he gorgeous, he is alittle over weight but I shall be hacking out alot over the summer and shall get this down promptly. He is a 12 years old English Arab, 15.1 hh and has wonderful smooth paces and is perfect for a novice even though he is fantastic at showjumping and has done alittle dressage. In time I would like to jump but one step at a time. The only pro http://www.horseforum.com/userpix/1099_Me_691_4.jpg
blem is he is constantly trying to nip, although not in a nasty way, although don't get me wrong if he did catch you it would really hurt. I shall put up another photo, I would love to know what you all think.
Regards Lisa.

Aww, He really is gorgeous. Kind eyes, gleaming coat, nicely proportioned, and lovely manners under the saddle too!

When does he try to nip you? Is it whilst grooming? Could he be trying to groom you back? Maybe he's been use to receiving treats, this could be another reason why he nips?

Keep us updated wont you, such a hansome fellow.

Thankyou,
He tends to nip when leading him from the paddock, grooming, even when standing head on in front of him, I don't think it is a vicious behaviour but it can be really annoying, although it does not frighten me in any way. But if i had the choice I would like to break this habit, any ideas welcome?
Regards Lisa.
