Help? Standard Breed Gelding


Bart is a 15/16 hh bay Standard breed gelding who is an awesome trail riding horse, however on his own he can get very edgy and forward moving. Previously I have had horses that have thrown me off and I have a building but sometimes shakey confidence.

When on a trail with even one other horse he is fine. On his own though we tries to trot/canter the whole time or turn back home to my other mare. I can handle this but as he continues I have noticed I am more nervous on him.

I stopped riding him for two months or so now but two of my friends have agreed to ride my mare with me while I ride Bart but I would like to go for a ride on my own sometimes too, it can get frustrating having to take a beginner with you all the time.

As of late my parents have both agreeded that if I can ride him on my own without any problems they will start looking for a new horse for me as I would like to start reining or roping as well as trail riding but I need help with him first.

On my mare I don't have any problems, they both have a heart of gold. Its just my confidence, if you have any ideas, please help.
