Rushing home is definitely something you want to stop because it only gets worse. You can do circles, stop, backing up...absolutely anything at all to instill the thought that only you control the speed. In spite of the head tossing, etc., ride it out if you can....if you can't, dismount and make her do circles/backing from the ground until she's calm enough for you to get back on and finish the ride. When you ride, plan some extra time for this on the way back because you really don't want to be in a rush and wind up giving in.
