I have 2 horses, I have worked at many lesson barns in the past, with biters, kickers, .blah blah blah...any horse that has bittn me that was NOT mine, I bite back, if its my horse, they get smacked in the face, (not hard) but enough to realize they screwed up, I know your never soppost to smack a horse in there face, andthat is the only time I will, Breeze bit me once when I first got him, popped him right in the nose and that was the last time he has ever even tried, let alone made contact, and he is not the least bit headshy,
Gemini bit me when he was 7 months old...same thing..POP. He freaked, and has never bitten anybody ever again. He is not head shy now either,..
