Post Biting problems?

My horse (Gorron) loves to take a bite out of everything, he is a very nice horse and always willing to run. This biting situation is a bit irritating , any suggestions or ideas?

By "everything" - do you mean he is biting objects, or is he biting people? Not sure what "always willing to run" has to do with whether or not he is a nice horse, or how a horse with a biting issue is a "very nice horse".

If what he is biting includes you, it's beyond irritating: it's dangerous.

Just what and when is he biting?

His stall bars.

I meant everything in a positive way and you do not have to be rude

No one has been rude. You wrote everything is being bitten, then said his stall bars.

So is he biting "everything" or just the bars on stall?

If everything, you need to tell us what is going on when biting, for instance, grooming, tacking, or leading, or at feeding time, during turn out, or other horses and people? Is this happening all, most, or only some of the time?

How long have you had him and how much experience do you have with horses?

When you say "he is willing to run" what does that mean? You only run him? Or he is a racehorse, and that is what he does as a career?

What is he being fed, both grain and hay, is he turned out any, and does he have anything, if he is stalled, to alleviate boredom? Can he see or interact with other horses? Is he a gelding? What breed and age?

How old are you, and what experience do you have with horses, and if young, is there someone around with more experience? Where did this horse come from, is he new to you, or one that you have had for a while?

Any other information that you can throw in would help to figure out what is going on here.

Okay so are you talking about cribbing or biting? BIG difference.

Please be more specific.

Hadn't even thought about cribbing...did think maybe was doing bars because of stall aggression?

Or being run too much?

I'm sorry its just I was in a hurry to right this , this is what I meant: one of my horses likes to bite his stall bars; not sure why. He gets taken out the right amount and is not being over ran. He is barely 3 years and 1 month. Enough info? And is going to be trained to dance.
