Tie his slightly tight, therefore he can't. Check up on him and makesure he is alright. I have a pony that i take on 3 day trails that does that. If i tie him tight enough he is fine

Work with him at home first. Set up a high line and tie him to it (or tie him to your trailer if that is how he will be kept). Keep him on the line for several hours at first then overnight. At least at home he will be more comfortable until he gets used to a new experience. Feed him the way he will be fed at the ride etc. The idea it to simulate what he will experience for your weekend ride.

Anything new takes training and it should be done at home whenever possible so as not to cause a problem with your horse or others at the ride.
