Because you are too busy being all cuddly with him instead of being a leader.

Unless you pushed him towards the fence, that issue and being caught are not related. It's a different issue of the horse not respecting you and pushing their limits. You want a horse to WANT to be with you.

Some horses aren't the lovey dovey type. I have a bunch like that. They know when it's time to work, they get the job done and don't want loved on. It's isnt a bad thing. Horses don't like to be loved on naturally, it's a learned behavior.

~Started young horses in Bosca te Ador, unto the two rein the old Spanish spade, brought them along with two hands that were gentle. Some fine reining horses as ever were made~

Then that is not the reason your horse is running away from you. It's lack of respect, possibly trust too.
