No, harsher equipment won't fix your problem. You need to find a trainer to help with your problem. Bolting and running back are a habit that when picked up can be very hard to reteach the correct behavior. It's a training issue, not a just put a harsher bit in it's mouth fix, you're going to have to go to the root of the problem and fix the behavior..The pony's bad habit will only get worse with time, especially if you just add harsh equipment, and could lead to your daughter getting seriously hurt..

I agree with Drum.

Sounds like the pony is too much for your daughter to handle. A good trainer is needed, or a calmer horse. There is no inbetween here.

A harsher bit is likely to ruin him. And a tie down doesn't do anything for horses that take off.

A bigger bit and tie down won't fix the problem....I just think that the pony is to much for your daughter right now. I say find a pony that is more honest and will be a fun experience for her instead of discouraging.
