How did he attack you?

Are you saying you found a solution? I think llhe is still not liking what is going on with him. If it were up to me I would quit using the cross ties and teach some manners or send him to the canners.

The canners? As in dog food? If so, how sick and twisted are you?

I'm confused... I can't see/find the annotation. Why and how did your horse attack you? And you solved it how? Sorry if I'm missing the obvious.

The video is here, TigerStripes.

Out of curiousity, how much turn-out does Reggie get? Horses kept in stalls for many hours of the day will get stressed out, especially ones with "aggressive" personalities like my boy Freddy, and they develop vices or behaviour problems that help channel their energy.
This "attack for no reason" could be caused by the lack of turn-out (and also lack of variation in work, horses get bored and depressed from doing the same things all the time.) that he gets. Healthy turn-out for most horses is around six to eight hours.

Trained I assuming you've cross tied him higher/tighter, or that you've just started cross tying him? That's not a solution, that's a cover up. To me, your horse still appears REALLY PISSY while tied, and you did one of the worst things you can do with a horse who has bitten that stood (for quite a while) and crossed right in front of him where he could easily have grabbed you. Now if the actual biting issue hasn't been addressed, him being cross tied is still him being a loose cannon waiting to go off. JMHO

No canners as in food for humans. And I am sick and twisted enough not to waste money, time and the risk of injury to myself or others on a horse that can't be handled without the risk of attack.

It won't be long before he turns to kicking or striking since he can't get to you with his teeth.

You need to go back and teach him ground manners. Leaving notes and putting him in cross ties gives you a temporary solution that doesn't fix the problem.

I hope you can work it out because that bit and the bruises look painful.
