Unhappy pony biting rugs?


Please can I ask for help/advise re:- my pony is biting/pulling another ponies rug

I have a lively 3year old fell gelding who loves to play with his 3 other field mates - all geldings
(we also have another 3year old fell in the same field-they have lived with each other since they were 6 months old and are like twins and are always running up and down the field playing- inclusive of the pony who he is now pulling his rug)

my problem is that my pony has started pulling one of the youngsters rug
(different owner) the management on the yard have been great and have got me some spray which I got owner to spray on their ponies rug. its only 2 days but my pony is still pulling away. the other pony will come up and start playing with my pony so its not that my pony always starts first..

I don't want to get into bad books with the owner, I'm trying my best but I need help.. thank you x

Crib box spray liberally spread over the rug.
