So what if he is mad? Sometimes I make my kids do things that make them mad because I know that it's beneficial to them. Cut out the grain and then work on it like a training issue. Slow him down then give him some slack and when he speeds up again slow him back down. Do leg yields and ride in zig zags around obstacles to get him thinking about something besides forward and get him paying attention to you. You are not even riding him moderately hard so he shouldn't need grain to maintain his wieght. If he does lose some wieght then add alittle grain back to his feed.
