Question
hello. sir how to stop a horse from biting?

Answer
HI WELL SOME  HORSES DO BITE PEOPLE AND YOU HAVE TO KEEP THEM BEHIND SCREENS IN THEIR STALL. YOU CAN GET A FULL DOOR SCREEN OR A HALF SCREEN FOR USE IN THE HORSES STALL. ALWAYS BE VERY DELIBERATE WHEN WORKING AROUND YOUR HORSE. A KIND WORD OR RESPONSE WILL ALSO GIVE THE HORSE NO REASON TO TRY TO BITE YOU. LOTS OF WORKING WITH THE BITING HORSE WILL HELP CURB THAT PROBLEM. PLENTY OF TREATS AND LOTS OF HEAD RUBBING . THANKS ed hess

Have trained thoroughbreds for 30 odd years. Have been a licensed trainer for that long of time. I continue to train my race horses and thoroughly enjoy every day.

Experience


Experience: Licensed trainer for over 30 yrs. Have had lots of winners in all different types of races - from bottom claimers to top quality stakes winners. My best money winner was Aristocratic Cross (multiple stakes winner). My best claiming horse was Navajo Family, winner of 12 races in one year. I still enjoy racing a modest stable of horses each year.
