Help needed !!

So my gelding has just come back from being away for a week, for the week he was away he was ridden by my cousin who trains horses. Alfie has come back a changed horse but I have one slight problem. When we are trotting or cantering, he kinda sticks out his head and pulls my hands and I feel like im holding his head up. My back is killing me from him doing this, is there any way of collecting him up? He then pulls against me and drags me down. Any help is greatly apprieated !!

I would hazard a guess that your cousin the "trainer" has very hard hands.

If this were my horse, I would stop worrying about "collecting" him up. I would drop the contact EVERY TIME he leaned on my hands - can't lean on something that isn't there. I would then push him forward and gently take up the contact again.
