Ok, I would work very much on your balance though. Sounds like he's not being naughty at all if that's the case, he feels you losing balance, so he doesn't go faster - smart pony!
See if you can get some lessons on a school horse, on the lunge. You need to learn to sit back on your seatbones.

Please find an instructor to help you. He is only 5, and he may try other tests on you.

I agree it could well be pain, so a Chiropractor is a good idea, and I would also not rule out teeth. Just because he was fine, doesn't mean he is now. Some horses need floating more frequently than others and, he is a 5 yo gelding-I would think that something called "wolf teeth" could be an issue. As I recall they usually show up about 5 or 6........

I'm looking into an instructor (my old one just moved), but she had been working with me on sitting back on my seatbones. Its more when Thumper just trots a stride or two that I tend to lose balance.
