So, I have a 4 year old Quarter Horse. He's green broke at the moment, but he bites. I'm not sure if he's meaning too, or what, because he normally lips at your hand but if I'm wearing gloves he'll nip at it. I'm thinking it might be because he smells old treats on them? He's never just bit me that I can remember, & he's the bullied horse out of my 5. He always tries to bite phones, or anything, if you have them out & he's near you.
How can you stop this annoying problem without hitting them? Or is smacking of the nose useful?
Whenever he does it I normally just shake the halter & back him off.
Any suggestions would be appreciated. :)
