Feel like a bit of a failure...
I have had my new boy for nearly a year now and I still haven't really got his biting habit in order. He does not do it very often at home but as soon as you lead him out the front gates he is a right royal bugger. I have tried everything that I know of in the past year. He is a very mouthy horse he often carries things around in his mouth like a ball, flag, shoes etc. he even runs after my other horse with the ball hanging out of his mouth hitting my other horse with it. He is not fussed who it is my sister, husband, dogs, my old horse (even though my old horse is boss) rugs, fly masks you name it he bites it
I am getting a trainer out tomorrow to observe and help with some ideas on how to tackle the problem. Horses are not new to me (30 years around them) so not fixing this problem myself is kinda embarrassing and I feel a bit of a failure for my new boy. Anyone ever felt like this.
No hour of life is wasted that is spent in the saddle.
