Same here. Our mares know when I've given them free rein to pick their own speed for fun and when I want them to walk/trot/lope.

I would definitely address this. I agree with those that have posted the advice to make him stop and proceed only at a walk. He is not respecting your commands or he is misinterpreting them. Would you let him take off in a trot or lope on flat ground if you didn't ask him to? A hill is no different when it comes to discipline and training. Yes, it is easier for a horse to lope up a hill, but sometimes you just have to say, "sucks to be you, horse!"
Make him listen to you.
