Some background info. In case it would make a differance..... he was a stud for 13 years, been guilded a little over two years now. Never tried to bite an adult, but has penned his ears at adults he was unfamiliar with or that are really short. Always pens his ear as soon as children come within 10 feet of him. He has been corrected for the ear penning and still continues to do it, but not so much towards boys now? He was being held by a familiar adult when he tried to bite my daughter and corrected within 3 secs of the failed attempt. He is perfectly fine with the children (now that he is use to their helmets, never spooked oover the helmets, you could just tell he would get nervous) when they riding him.
Anyone heard of a horse not liking children and where is a good place to start in getting him to stop? I want my whole family to enjoy him, but I want all involved to be safe! Could he be just scared of their size??
