Hi so I took my 13 year old gelding on a trail ride today, and as we headed out for some reason he kept resisting and simply did not want to go on the trail he just wanted to rush back home to the usual spot where I get off and untack him after a ride. . Being that I thought he might just not feel good or something was wrong like he smelled a bear or something I let him go home and as I was taking his saddle off I discovered that his cinch strap had broken. Could it be possible that the reason he wanted to go home and have me get off him so badly was because he could have possibly known it was broken? I know this might be a silly question but please answer if you could.

My horse has rubbed his nose raw on his leg. What can I put on his nose to help it. I spray him for flies so I don't think that's why he's doing that. And why may he be doing this?
