Sarahandlola, I didn't mean hours later after a 15 mile hike to get to the gate. And I didn't say to treat after a horse has run you around. I actually don't treat my horse at all, ever for anything. My horse gets praise as his reward.
I don't intend for this to be mean at all, but as you just posted a thread asking whether horses bite, I think it might be better if you learn as much as you can before giving out advise. Of course you are free to do as you chose, and I didn't mean to offend you. We all, myself included, have a lot to learn every day.
