Some horses do not want to be challenged when eating by humans or horses. If your horse is food aggressive it might be best to separate the horse during feed time. I had a horse at my house who would double barrel kick while being fed. There was only one other horse in the field with him and he stayed far away. We fed them far apart and I never went into the field with feed. If a horse is aggressive over treats then either stop giving them or limit when and how much you give them. I have had horses that I only gave treats to in their feed bucket.
