Has he done this since ??
My first lesson pony used to do this. Our first ride together he did it everytime I asked for something, eventually like a month or two latter he stopped because he new he still had to work.
He was checked for saddle sores and back problems and ulcers and afew other things but he just seemed to like to pin his ears when we asked for him to do something. When he would pin his ears we were told to push him to continue forward. He would then proceed to buck a little and rear... I was also told to ignore it and give a tap on the hind with my crop and encourage forward movement.
The less we paid attention to it the better he got and eventually stopped doing it bc he still had to work either way.
Not sure if its the right way or not... I was 8 using a lesson horse and that's what my instructor told me to do and I was in a small arena where if he really did have the chance to go crazy my instructor could get at him easier and he wouldnt run off with me...
