Sounds like everyone's horse needs a refresher course on just who is supposed to be the leader. Hint, it's not the horse.
If your horse acts up, mine is not allowed to do so. If I'm unable to control him that's my fault, not yours.
However, if your horse is behaving dangerously to the point where my animal's well being might be compromised, then yes, I'm not going to want you along.
Sounds like everyone, horses and riders, need to be properly trained to handle uncertain situations.
If they can't handle their horses because yours is acting up, then maybe they shouldn't be out hacking either.
