If a horse is going to bite me, any horse at all. Im going to smack it, because that's causing a danger to me, and really, someone can sue you because your horse biting them. But that's just me.

I agree... I'd smack a horse for biting me, and I would expect someone to smack mine for the same behavior... but i'd still be a little miffed.... (it's a natural feeling)

I don't care if the Queen of all Horseland owned the horse...IF it tried to bite me...I'd smack it too. Without a second thought. As stated before a horse CAN be a dangerous animal. I mean absoultely NO offence to You or Sonny... But you have posted here before that Sonny isn't always a gentleman, especially around or to people other than you. From what you have said it sounds like the girl helped you out by showing sonny that she will not put up with it.

Sometimes we love our horses so much that we can't see their flaws. Same thing with our children. However when my kids act up I can talk to them about it. Reason with them. Get their side of the story. Sure I get PO'ed when someone else gets onto my kids. But if they were wrong(kids)...they were wrong. Same thing with Sonny. IF he bit her, You should be mad at sonny, not her!

I really hope that in the future you don't have any problems with this... its really a stinky situation. I would be tempted to ask someone else to feed him again and have you "hide" where you can see him but he can't see you... Maybe you would see that his behavior isn't the same as with you. Then if it is you can address the situation with a better perspective.

If anyone ever touched my horse like that, I would go ballistic!! I am very choosy who handles my horse!! The fact that he will back up when you put his hay in, but then bites this girl when she puts the hay in is suspicious. She may have startled him, or like you said, it may be a trust issue. And if I had a horse who is a renowned biter, I would tell people to stay away from it! I am strongly against smacking horses, I never hit my horse and she is a sweetheart, and tbh, if anyone did do something like that to her, she would probably retaliate, because that's the sort of horse she is, if you respect her, she will respect you! So in a nutshell, no I don't think you were over reacting! Ok, i'll get off my soapbox now!

Tin hat firmly on!

The fact that she says he bit her is the iffy part.
Some times a horse will just use there lips and I have seen them do it and the person responds by saying the horse bit them or was going to bite, when in fact it wasnt at all.

If there is no visual mark like a bruise left then there is no actual proof to if your horse actually bit her , there for I don't actually agree with her hitting your horse in this situation. She could have done other things like stern voice and shooed the horse away , instead of hitting it since it wasnt her horse .

As far as im concerned unless was a truely dangerous behaviour then she souldnt have hit your horse at all. Especially if your horse has no history of biteing.

In answer to the biting issue (general) I would definitely have a go at the horse who has a go at me. In actual fact if someone came to me and said 'your horse bit me' the first thing I would say would be 'did you bite her back!!' I would be more upset if they didn't diciplin her. FYI my girl is a complete biatch who is known to have more than a nasty streak, she's a complete prima-dona.

Back to the running around scenario, if she is saying that your horse didn't bite her, but he is scared still then perhaps she threw the hay a little bit too close to him and he got scared. If he has trust issues then this could have been enough to set him off.

Just remember that sometime people like to make up stories to make themselves big, but when they find out that it's upset another it's a it hard to backpeddle and not be made out to be a fool.

Take a deep breath and chill, talk to her politely and explain the situation, perhaps thank her for feeding your horse but can she please take more care around him.

If my horse bit someone, i'd be mad if they didn't punish him.
