I am at a complete loss with this one. I've got a 13.2 hh welsh that is a pretty nervous guy but overall pretty willing. When I put him on a lounge line he just goes as fast as he possibly can and pulls on the line to get away from me as much as possible. He won't slow down until you get him to a complete halt and he's backing up away from you. I've tried to just wait for him to tire out, but it never happens he will run until he is breathing so hard. I've tried getting him in a small circle but he canters or trots really fast in such a tight circle I think I could reach out and touch him. For him it's either 1,000 mph or a complete stop hauling back.
We don't have a roundpen, so I really can't use that. He's not really rideable yet either so I need to be able to work him on the lungeline. I don't know his hitsory, he just came to me last week and I know he was allowed to run fast and buck a lot on the lunge line with the previous trainers. I think he's scared and also misbehaving but I just don't know how to slow him down at all! Has anyone else been able to fix this with their horses?
