If you have a horse that is always trying to push its luck then that calls for a certain response from the rider and that is not always the whip.
What the horse will need is EITHER a master OR a mistress - take your pick. But gently tell your fella at home that your horse is your horse - if he wants one then there are plenty out there looking for a good home.
PS Is this the horse with the side pull?
Yes, that would be the same horse. I only have the one :) I am betting, from this experience, that not sharing a horse has helped that marriage last 45 years ;)
Thank you for the advice!
