Rule infractions ... but no one has claimed that there were rule infractions

So if someone complains to a steward that a rider is overriding his horse, and
the horse was approved by the vets to go on, exactly what is it you would have a
steward do?  Overrule the vets?  Pull the rider on the trail between checks?
Tar and feather the rider?  What?
