It is a dicipline problem. It is ok for a horse to get excited on a hack, It is not ok however for them to misbehave because they are excited.

I expect my horses to hack out in a group and whilst they may get excited I expect them to walk trot and canter sensibly in a group and go back to walk when asked. I expect that the only sign of excitement should be that they are quite forwards.
I expect my horses to go for a good gallop up a hill in a group and to come back to walk sweetly and quietly when told to, WITHOUT a fight.

It is a discipline problem, you need to remind the horse that you are the boss and she puts her feet only where you tell her to and nowhere else.

I'd like to know exactly what your horse does when she is excited.
Does she prance? Is she spooky? What is her issue?

Yes, this is a matter of who is boss. But if you are looking for help on what to do in this specific situation, you need to give us specific details. I know many of the 'answer-ers' in this thread are very experienced horse people, and would gladly give you exercises or tips on how to change this relationship between you and your horse. So by giving us a better explanation, you will be sure to get the answers you are looking for.

The solution is to keep going out until you get it right. Every year my horse turns into a bratty butt-head once the temperature gets under 40 degrees. He tosses his head, tries to run through my aids and take off when we canter. It is simply not acceptable. Last time out, we went out with a calm horse and transitioned his butt off. By the end, he wanted to stop instead of run off. Just keep with it...it works eventually.
