Has anyone tried NipBuster?

Hi,
I was just wondering if anyone has tried this product. I can't find anyting on the internet other than their website or videos.
It LOOKS like it works, ha-ha. But I am truly curious.

My idiot has a 'thing' about a certain saddle (Yes, it's been checked and fits fine.) and due to the lack of time I get out there with him, about 2 hours every other day or so, every time I go it's like we are starting all over with his biting.

I've tried everything from pet pet pet pet the crap out of his face, to head down, deep breathing, I moved his tongue over so he would bite it if he snapped, I've bitten him back and backed him off. But, he just refuses.

I'm NOT looking for a quick fix so I can ride. I want a permanent fix, I don't care how long it takes. Anyhow, so I was wondering what your thoughts are on this stuff.

I have very, very low hopes for it, but... at this point... I'll try anything short of pushing him down and pulling his hair, ha-ha.

So... Anyone?

He knows when you're happy
He knows when you're comfortable
He knows when you're confident
And he always knows when you have carrots.

Never heard of it, so sorry I can't help.

I think your issue could be more easily addressed than using a marketed gadget though. Your horse is not respect you if he is biting at something that you are doing. I would not tolerate that, not for a second.

I know, it's totally my fault, I turned it into a game with him and I didn't mean to. I'm trying to back up and regroup and stick with ONE tactic. I was just wondering if anyone even heard of it.

I'm taking more time off work next week so I can work with him every day for about 9 days. It just seems that there is a reset button. And every time I go out there, we start all over.

ouch...$25.00 for three little spray things...

while I don't doubt it works..A swat from my hand on the muzzle of the offending biter is just as effective and alot cheaper:/

that's when you up the anty and hit him harder and jump down his throat for it- makes much less of a game.

But that's just me.. if it worked for you, awesome.
