srh1 if your horse bites me then it will get a smack, like it or not, if your horse is nipping then clearly it hasnt got any manners and correction has to be done instantly, not 2 mins later when youve managed to get accross the yard to discipline your horse, at that point the horse doesnt understand why it is being punished.
i've had plenty of horses bite me over a stable door as I walked past, all have got a smack, none have thought about doing it again.
My own pony occassionaly will nip at the moment (frustration at being locked in a stable on boxrest) He doesnt dare nip me but the lady who looks after him in the morning for me wont smack him so he takes advantage.
RIDE your horse FORWARDS and keep him STRAIGHT
