I completely agree about the cookies. If the horse gets nippy I don't give cookies. I've only had one horse that was like that though, couldn't even have them in your pocket or she would rip your clothes off. No cookies for her You cant do this with ALL horses.

I agree with the above posts
and also ....
make sure you arnt just catching him if you are going to ride. Do it every time you go into the paddock. When you want to just go see him catch him, give him pats and cuddles then let him go. Just so he can see that catching him doesnt mean work all the time, it doesnt even nessicarily mean he has to leave the paddock.

Once hes used to it you wont have to do it every time....
