What you can do is make it into more of a game. So, if he wants the leadrope, you give him the leadrope. If he has it in his mouth grab the rope on either side of his face and move it back and fourth. I would suggest not tying him up, because it would be really hard to do this. But just keep the rope in your hand and make him stand there. My gelding used to always do that, even when lunging and just walking around. Every time he would have the rope in his mouth I'd shove it in his mouth, and move it back and fourth. If he backed up, I did too. I just did it for a few moments, then stopped and went back to what I was doing like nothing happened. He'd usually get sort of confused, like "what just happened?" Now he just tries to eat dirt. -.- Always something with those horses who just can't stand still.
My horse bites like that, too. He wiggles his lip on you, then licks and wiggles, then maybe if he gets far enough he just chomp on you. XD He's sort of a captain obvious.
