What did this horse bite?

I saw this on YouTube and was trying to look for warning signs of what was to come, but I can't put my finger on it. Was this horse just being a jerk?

I would have punched it in the face. My horse lunged at me to bite me like that once. Hasn't done it since. He has bit other people though.

Could be because the man was standing right at the food where the horse was eating. Some horses are REALLY protective over food.

He needs to be taught some major manners though, there's no way he should get away with it!

That would be my guess. Either food aggressive or just a P.I.T.A.

I see him being food aggressive. And coming from a breed that is naturally high strung its no surprise. He looks very anxious. Definitely needs a lesson or two on manners.
It looked like the guy got lucky and he just got his coat though.
I totally think that breed is gorgeous...* random thought*
