they don't HAVE
to be pulled unless they are causing pain or discomfort to the horse, most people however do get them pulled because they are situated in the bit seat and can cause problems when bits are used. A little mare of mine had ALL 4
(very uncommon for mares!) and she only had them pulled last year at age 7, because the dentist was out anyway and it was an uncomplicated procedure, as she was sedated anyway, the dentist pretty much just grabbed a pair of pliers and whipped them out, no problems.
If you plan on breaking the horse in bitless, then you shouldn't have any problems at all with the wolf teeth, they usually only cause problems because they interfere with the bit and make it uncomfortable
