I have a lovely young Saddlebred colt who is the MOUTHIEST creature in the whole entire world. I've never had a colt who uses his mouth as much as Harley. He has NEVER been allowed to use his mouth on me and he still challenges that and occasionally gets his teeth on my shirt or steals my hat. I go after him like a wild bear each and every time because he's going to be over 17 HH when he's full grown and at 5'3", I'm not going to be as annoying as a fly when he's up there. I do NOT want a 17 HH horse grabbing me by the back of the neck like that draft did in the video, that's a quick way to get severely injured or dead. The little kid was lucky all he did was fling her and didn't do the knee drop on her, that would have been the end of her.
Kevin might be being a bit sarcastic with you but I think it's well meant. Get after your horse each and every time he tries to give you a nip. No more cuddles and licking, he's the type that you give an inch and he'll take an ell.
