A sinner with me an angel with anyone else. Pulling on bit

My horse is a little more crazy with me. He acts like my little brother and torments me when no one is around. When other people come around he is an angel with them. Why is that??
Also my horse pulls on the bit alot trying to get reins shorter. My reins are not too tight. When i let him do it and give him more rein his head bops out and he is not together. Thanks.

With that much info, it's hard to say much at all. He sounds like possibly a playful boy and maybe he's too preoccupied to play with you when others are around, or you treat him differently & he knows you won't play when people are there?

Re reins, perhaps you're on his mouth more than you realise or having any contact is too much for him & he hasn't learned this well enough to be comfortable with it. Maybe his mouth hurts. Maybe he's uncomfortable or unbalanced, from saddle, you, etc & feels the need to stretch out & hollow his back to try to avoid the discomfort.
