    No trigger don't pull because he is way stronger than you and you will get into a fight and you know who will win. Just turn him on the circle and sit back. Update us when you try. Good Luck

    Ok I'll try that thanks! But honestly I'd really need an enclosed area to do all of this! To work with him. But I'll try to work with him at the bottom half of the paddock (If I can stop him from galloping off to the other side of it!!)

    Hello again. We understand that your horse isn't TRAINED to do certain things, but a lot of experienced riders (who have been in situations with horses that wouldn't stop) are telling you the same:

    When he runs away with you, you CAN NOT stop him by pulling on the reins. He is stronger than you will ever be. You can have the reins on the third ring, you could change to a stronger bit, whatever... but he will STILL BE STRONGER THAN YOU.

    So - accept that trying to stop him isn't the answer.

    Then... he is actually just a horse, he is not a clever devious person. He isn't trying to escape, he's just green and full of beans and probably a little anxious.

    If you ride him forwards you will be safe.

    If you steer him he will listen to you because he has been taught the basic aids and when he's taking off with you on top of him he's not actually thinking "ignore her", he's just not thinking at all.

    So when you are riding him forwards you will be able to steer him.

    Look around the field and keep your eyes fixed on a big wide circle. Aim for it. Don't try to turn him really tight because that will unbalance him (and you). Ride in the biggest circle that the field will allow.

    What has been said about your weight is true and it's nothing to do with the horse being trained, it's just basic physics about the horse having to deal with the weight of a human on his back.

    Ok thanks I'll try all that.

    Trigger123 he doesn't have to be trained to do it. If you sit back he has to slow and the circle stops him getting that run on a straight line. Remember that's all we told you to do on Lucky when she had her bullet head on?

    Maybe I should tighten the bit on the bridle because I recently checked it on him and it's like one hole to loose but it's on the top hole so I'm going to make another hole in it and hopefully that's just the problem solved! But he was fresh too!! (Lol I'm posting this from school I have a free C.S.P.E class!!! )

    If the bits been too low it might have been knocking against his teeth and irritating him every time you gave him some pressure on it

    I would love to be in Ireland 'seeing the wind' - I spent a lot of time there as a child and teenager when my Grandfather lived in Cork and its still high on my wish list of places to live
    Sorry off topic!!!

    The wind was unreal! Trees falling killed at least one person in my area. Car nearly blew across the road! The rain drops were massive and now they have turned into snow much my sisters delight
