My horses are home. Every single morning, when I come in the barn, the one I have to walk past catches me with his lips --- he never tries to bite. He could brush my face, my arm, my hair --- just depends how I pass him.
If I stop to smooch him, he stands very quiet. With his head down (over his stall) enjoying the moment.
If you have children, you already know "how to do both" ------ be the leader yet have them like/love you:)
As for the BM ____ I Would imagine for the sake of safety with new people around horses, the one size fits all rule has to be applied. Even though the horse was not doing anything wrong in this instance, the BM can't afford to have anyone hurt by not following the rules.
A Good Horseman Doesn't Have To Tell Anyone; The Horse Already Knows.
