Seek the help and advice of a trainer.

If you currently have a trainer who is allowing these dangerous things to happen, find a new one.

Good luck.

I think you are in need of some help as your horse seems to be assuming the leadership role
I would tie her up short enough that she couldn't reach to bite me and I'm afraid that if she was mine she'd also get a good slap every time she tried it but unless you have the experience to deal with any repercussions (which I'm thinking maybe you don't) then you need help from someone that does.

My trainer usually does it and if she bites she does get a slap
The reason i have a wonderful horse is not only to ride but to take care of it tack and un tack
Thats why i want to get her to stop so i dont have to go nagging my trainer all the time

You don't have a wonderful horse, though. You have a pushy one that is likely confused because sometimes she is reprimanded, and other times she is not.

Listen to your horse. Your probably girthing her up to tight to fast. Do it slowly and gently over a few minutes.

Why is she biting you? You should either tie her short, cross tie her as well as discipline her when she bites you! She needs a hard punch in the nose or whip across the hind end! Biting is not acceptable, ever.
