I was wondering... Sonny, werent you english and you just recently switched to western? If that's the case, english movement is a little different, you kind of "pump" or you move with the horse, where with western, it's more of a side to side motion, against the horse, to slow him down... I'm not explaining very well...

Sit deep, relax, and breathe Horses really feel you... Also, circle, circle, circle! If he speeds up, do small circles (bend his nose in, ask for collection, apply your inside leg to bend around you) until he slows down. Then come out of it. If he speeds up again, complete this process each time. He'll start to realize that each time he speeds up, he's going to have to circle, and horses do get bored easily!

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.
