    Is he just too much horse for a 13 year old?
    Again no pics or video so no clue how tall she is or what her build is like
    I have found that if a horse likes to gallop then it likes to gallop and even if you run it until its exhausted it will still want to gallop again the next chance it gets
    This horse has now discovered that it can get away from its rider and that is never a good thing and neither is having to run a horse to get the energy out of it - because it will just get fitter and stronger - and she can't ask for someone else to get on it first to tire it out every time she wants to ride.
    Lunging it before she rides might be a solution to wearing it out - but its not what she should have to do and wouldn't have to do if the horse was better suited to her strength and ability level
    He'd probably be a great horse for a bigger more experienced rider but I'm not seeing him as being a good fit for this one

    No matter what anybody says I will never give him away or sell him to anyone. And he doesn't need a 'more experienced rider'. Everyone goes through some difficulties so there's no need to get a 'better horse'. Trigger is just absolutely perfect! Nobody gets anywhere by giving up. I'm a fighter!! I will NEVER surrender!!!!!!!

    I don't think that anyone can really help you then
    You're reluctant to get a trainer to work alongside you or to send him to a trainer for more schooling in open area situations
    If you were experienced enough for him then his behavior wouldn't be a problem for you that you'd need advice on
    If he was perfect he wouldn't be behaving like this
    On top of that you have a horse that's too big to compete in children's classes - that's if you intend to compete of course, if not that doesn't really matter
    I will wish you luck and hope you can sort out is behavioral issues and have some fun with him

    Unfortunately, I have to disagree with you there.
    Yes... He does need a more experienced rider. Why? Because if you were able to handle him, you wouldn't have posted here.
    There is a difference between a rough patch and dangerous. I once had a pony that I too, thought was perfect. She bucked me off, and several times, she almost killed me. I thought it was a rough patch... But every single bit of confidence that I had ever gotten was utterly gone. She got worse. If I hadn't have given her up, who knows what might have happened. So yes, you actually can get somewhere by admitting defeat, and moving on. I can tell you, that absolutely no horse in the world is perfect. You would never have asked if your horse was perfect. You wouldn't have these difficulties.
    I know it's hard to hear... Trust me... I do, but sometimes you just have to face up to facts.
    I hope you find a solution, what ever your choice.
    Good luck.

    I posted here to say what anyone had to say! (I'm new on this)! :) I don't think I'll be competing or anything!! But we are handling the situation now so everything's ok!! :) It is just a rough patch! He doesn't buck me off or hurt me on purpose (or at all really!!) He just had a burst of energy!! Thanks though guys.

    As Katy suggested build a fenced area. Use pickets, step ins rope around trees anything.

    When I moved my youngster she started getting a bit pigheaded. I was on 15 acres and had 4 other horses loose. My beautiful quiet ride who I'd started cantering and jumping started testing me simply walking/ turning trotting.

    I stopped riding for 3 weeks and built my arena 20x 60 with pickets CAPS and using silver rope from the hardware store. That gave me so much more confidence to pull here head in.

    It will help. I promise. If you can't afford it all Christmas is coming, get your parents family etc to chip in some money for Christmas. I'm sure your parents would be happy knowing it would keep you safe.

    Thanks! That is really helpfull We're hoping to get half of the paddock (the flat half) fenced off as soon as possible! And I would need an arena big enough to do jumps or give him a good run around!!! :) Can't wait for Christmas!!

    When you turn him on a circle you said he just shoots off right? Well make sure your reins are tight and keep on a tight circle so he dosn't have enough balance. Do not let him get in a straight line or your gone and remember to sit back and use your weight.

    Candycanes you can learn most things on a schooled pony like lucky RIP which caoimhe here did and now she is moving up onto her pony a more dificult pony to learn how to handle these tricky situations which she is doing well. Don't try and tell me all your ponies are perfect all the time because I know they are naot no ones are but we learn to handle those situations and with that we improve our riding. Now think to a time when your pony was being dificult. How would you like it if all you were told to do is to either get lessons which you can't or sell the pony you love?
