Puck...the lesson horse I ride is also like your guy. Beginners ride him in the summer! But as soon as winter rolls around, he's a wild man....at 19. I nearly ran over some poor kid on a pony last year because she was standing on the track while I was jumping, and I couldnt stop him. Luckily, Bart jammed on the brakes and dodged last second. There were times I was leaning back as far as I could, feet braced against the stirrups, pulling as much as hard as I could. There were a few times that I yanked on his mouth pretty hard on purpose to get the point across.....and backed him up the whole length of the arena.
