    Steff I have another pony just like that, and this one is similar but not the same. If this pony finds a jump scary in any way he will look at it, think about it and then he will just race into it, I swear he does it with his eyes shut! Its horrible! I keep a light contact and have heaps of leg but it never seems to work!

    The horse needs training not a change of equipment; that would be my first guess at least. However if it has been knocked about and had its mouth messed up with a bit it might be worth trying something different, (which would mean complete retraining from the ground up anyway) however Iím still leaning towards retraining with the existing setup.
    It sounds to me like the horse needs to be taught respect, it shouldnít be going off the track when you ride it at all, it should respect you and trust you, and the respect needs to come before the trust. If it is going OK when at home, then Iím guessing itís in a familiar environment so feels relaxed and the lack of trust/respect issue probably isnít arising much. If however you mean that when you ride out away from home the horse goes off track, but when you are riding towards home it stays on the track, then Iíd have no doubt the horse is being disrespectful.
    Bsms is giving you a few good ideas there, Iíd be listening to that.
