No, he doesn't get away with it. Every time he does it I make him work hard until he stops. He's learning - just slowly.
We did have a saddle issue before, but we have that fixed. Brisco's original one was too small. But we put Golley's on him and it fits very nicely on both horses. So we use the new one for brisco and golley is continuing to use his old one.
We have never had them checked by the chiropractor - they don't need because they don't have any issues with their muscles or tightness, etc.
Like I said before (Or I think so, ;P) there is no pain issues behind this, just them trying to be bossy. But I have never nor will I allow them to get away with it. haha!! Brisco is old, and the past owners didn't do too well with him - but Brisco is turning out very nicely and a much better horse than when he waas my mom's main horse.
My mother got a new one, So Brisco is now mine and we share golley with everyone. Golley would listen to a toddler, so I am not worried about him with anything. Both of their health is fine and they are turning out very good.
