Another thing that may help you is if you have a horse that starts pawling the ground. Put all your weight on the side he is pawling on. This will make them adjust there selves to keep there feet under them. And if they still happen to roll as soon as they start to get up work them real hard from the ground. Them give them a break to get their air and just stand there. Making the right thing easy and the wrong thing hard. I have seen some horses do cause the way there saddle pad is threw on them. I learnt along time ago to put the pad on there back and then move the pad backwards pick it and do it again. Then always make sure you pull the pad up in the under the pommel

Brent, I would never allow a horse to continue rolling - my feet hit the ground and that horse is punished. No "oh ok enjoy your roll, then I'll show you!"

No I never said anything bout letting them roll. When it happens to me which it hasn't in a long time I'm on back in the saddle before he gets up and they would be working.
