Hello OP, I'm suspecting that as he becomes a 'bored teenager' he may be creating amusements and you are unwittingly feeding it. Do you think you are anticipating problems with the rug, and letting him mess about? If he is tied up and you are grooming him can you put a saddle cloth on him without fuss? Then perhaps your coat? Do you correct him with a stern word if he messes when you do those things?
How is he generally in your space? Does he crowd you?
Get up, get going, seize the day. Enjoy the sunshine, the rain, cloudy days, snowstorms, and thunder. Getting on your horse is always worth the effort.
