    she was just letting this horse bite her, I am so strict with my horses on biting and manners. it's obvious this one has very little respect for his handler. not a good start in my opinion.

    @lechill1978 you may be right, but the horse had to develop the habit somehow, and the example in this video suggests it's from a lack of discipline. Horses are big animals, and an arrogant or disrespectful one can be dangerous. Owners have to consider that they are responsible for their animal's behavior, and you're not always going to be the only one to handle them.

    But I also think these habits are more readily developed in stabled horses. It's not natural for an animal to live in a box.

    slapping and hitting a horse is wrong. If you don't want a horse to bite you then focus on preventing the problem not retaliating after the fact. Prevention is the best trainer.

    @esmithbabeyy A firm verbal command would do!

    A firm verbal command would suffice to keep him from grabbing at her and everything else, but that horse could be tied a little tighter and his halter should fit better….

    Hi, I've been riding for about 7 or 8 months (1hr lesson on saturdays) and I finally have a video up of my riding, I was wondering if anyone would like to comment and tell me if I'm doing things wrong and how to fix them. It would be really helpful ^-^ Just check out the ONLY horse video on my channel, it's named 'Cantering' Thanks again!

    Personally, My horse is young but seriously has adhd. xD She hates standing still and doing one thing or so long. Just like past comments, its just how some horses are. 🙂

    You need to teach that horse some manners. He/she is biting and moving around to much.

    Some horses are fidgety ok

    respect, or fear? In my eyes it's the same thing. The horse isn't deliberatly being rude, it's being a horse! horses bite and nibble on everything they can, it's what they do.

    Please ignore the comb on the tail. Tails should never be combed
