I'm not sure what your question is, but my horse is the same way. She has SO much extra energy that she gets bored with just normal ringwork, and she finds a way to entertain herself, which is misbehaving just to spite me. It takes a LONG time to get her reasonably settled down so she's not trying to run everywhere. Just keep your horse working, a couple good hours every day, if you can. He should settle down eventually.
You haven't posted a question?? Not sure what the point of this one is sorry.
As for him trying things to 'spite' you... you cannot humanise a horse. They do not do things to 'spite' you, they do not try to get revenge etc. I'm sure your horse is just being young, and if he reacts negatively to something you do, more than likely it's because you haven't asked right.
Yep, but that's not humanising them, that's reacting out of 'boredom'... very different to spite ;) Or because the horse isn't sure yet what do it, it hasn't learnt the aid, it's feeling 'off' that day etc etc.
Ah, very true.
