I'm in my 40s and I'm not real interested in going too fast. My horse has a real nice lope (it's on the faster side) and I ride it just fine. But since the weather started changing ( I've had him since 4/11) all he wants to do when I ask him to lope is go really fast. He lifts his head real high and wants to go!! I can calm him but I feel like I spend half my riding time trotting him in tight circles to get him to slow down. He is not a spooky horse so he's not bolting. I want to lope, but I'm not sure how to make him slow down in the lope with out him breaking down into a trot. I rode when I was a kid, but have only been back into it for about 2 years. I have also no formal training. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
