Unhappy Bad horse, owner even worse!

Hi guys a friend of mine has a horse that is constantly railroading him, the horse goes crazy everytime he brings out the food, snorting and carrying on. To the point where its very dangerous for everyone including him. The horse I can kind of cope with, its teaching this guy (who has no experience wiht horses, he rescued the horse thinking it would be fun) how to handle him, and letting him know the problems he faces with a horse who has no respect.
Does anyone have a any tips on training a human (stubborn male)?
Cheers lisa and carla

Send both horse and owner to a trainer - or at least take the owner to one. Education is the key.

Explain to the stubborn male that he isn't doing his rescue any favors by letting him walk all over him. Tell him the dangers that this behavior represents. If he realizes that this horse could trample him to death in effort to get to his food, he may decide to re-evalute the way he deals with the animal. And then, to avoid any abuse, show the stubborn male how to go about stopping the behavior in a non-abusive manner.

PS. I absolutely love Wannafish's answer. =]
