403 is a generic server error. It can be caused by permissions or restrictions like mod_security. I suspect mod_security. The only way to know for sure is to examine the logs on the server. Ask your host to disable mod_security to see if that is the problem.

+1 for mod_security, I've seen that being the cause of that issue before. You could try adding a disable statement in your .htaccess
<IfModule mod_security.c>
