What do you do when you try and tack up a horse who tries to bite you. Bounty tried to bite be 3 times last Wednesday which is an improvement! Normally my mum comes in with me to hold her head so I can sort out her tack but it was just me last week and I had to rug her too. The moment I went into the stable I saw her ears were pinned back so I gave her a polo. That cheered her up but then she saw the birdle and took a swipe at me. I had my dressage whip with me so I flicked the end on her rug to make a noise. She was then OK for about a minute when she started again! I managed to tack her up in the end but then I took her through to the school and went to tighten the girth and she walked into me and tried to take another swipe! I made her walk back to where she was stood. Nina said I had done well with her but I don't think I could have done after all of that! She says to flick her on the end of her nose but I don't know how hard to do it and she would probably bite my finger when I went to to it! PLEASE HELP! Any advice welcome!
