Stressed during riding

I just got a new 7 yr old saddle bred and im training him to jump, but he gets really stressed when ridden. Even when we go on trail rides he gets fast and jiggy. We can't even loose rein because he just takes off, Does anyone have any advice?? Any tips would b great thanx!!

First things first. Is there any pain? Saddle fitting badly, existing physical issues, and don't overlook the teeth!

If all that checks out do you have a round yard or somewhere enclosed that you could start in. You need to get him relaxed at walk before trotting etc.

Is he nervy being saddled/led or just once your up there?

Don't forget for many horses trails can be a bit stressful. It's an unfamiliar environment with strange sounds, smells, and random moving things.
