Any time he does this, ride him to closer to the barn and work the dickens out of him when you are near the barn. When you think he's had enough of that, walk him away. Every time he acts up to return to the barn, repeat that.
Funny story, my granddaughter wanted to canter on Peanut(pony). She would walk him out to the far end of the arena, turn and try to canter him back(usually he trotted tho). Before long he didn't want to come back to the barn.
