Under the conditions of different amplitudes, truncation coefficients, and nonlocal degrees, we numerically study the evolution of shedding soltions generated by two kinds of symmetric Airy pulses with space-reversed shapes in a strongly nonlocal nonlinear medium by split-step Fourier method. The results indicate that as the amplitude increases, truncation coefficient and nonlocal coefficient decrease, a tail-leading Airy beam not only generates a shedding soliton at the main lobe, but also generates the shedding solitons at the side-lobes. Thus the number of shedding soliton further increases. However, no matter how the amplitude, truncation coefficient, and nonlocal coefficient change, only one shedding soliton is generated at the main lobe of a tail-trailing Airy beam, while the shedding soliton cannot be generated at the side-lobes. Therefore, we can control the generation and number of shedding soliton by manipulating the amplitude and the truncation coefficient of an Airy beam, and controlling the nonlocal coefficient of a medium.
