Teach him a very good 'One rein stop". Do it right and the he will learn that when you run a hand down a rein, he has to stop. You can fix any of these chargy horses -- even bolting runaways.

It takes about 3 or 4 sessions to get this done right on a horse like this. I've done it on more than a hundred of them.

When you pull on both reins at the same time, a horse can 'push back' or can just tune you out and keep going. They cannot fight a properly applied one rein stop.

I have to get a big set of trail horses ready and will be gone all day so I do not have time to look it up, but I put up a post long ago titled "One rein stop -- our way". It tells exactly how to do it without having any negative repercussions. Just do an advanced search.

This is one of the easier problems to fix.

Wasn't as easy to search that up as I'd expected.
It's here:
