He may be a bit herd bound and is looking forward to being with his buddies in a familiar place. On the other hand, if he gets treats and rest when he gets home he may be excited about that. Try working him for 20 to 30 minutes after each trail ride, and if he usually gets grain or treats when he gets home, cut that out(he can still have them, just at a different time). Also, if you let him canter or gallop on the way home, I would cut that out as well. If he knows he has to work when he gets home and that there aren't goodies waiting for him, he may not be in such a rush to get there. It will be a lot of work and not much fun for a while, but no pain, no gain;). Hope this helps.
To ride or not to ride.....What a silly question!
