Whooo, pigrooting pony - everyones fave!! Heels down, bum deep in the saddle, hands steady, shoulders back and strong core - keep his head up. At the same time drive drive drive with your leg - not even the cheekiest pony can pigroot and move forwards at the same time.

All horses deserve, at least once in their lives, to be loved by a little girl.

Have you had his back looked over. Maybe he is sore somewhere, which is causeing him to do this. I would get him looked at then go from there. The fact that he used to do it when he canters and now trots could indicate the problem is getting worse. Best outcome would to be find he is sore cause otherwise a bad habit to break once they realise they can win.

This sounds like a lack of respect and control issue. You are not going to see him get better until you work out the underlying issue.
I have a arabian/welsh pony too, and he is doing the same as your and as Kim angel said, you need to learn the one rein stop, really this is "the" solution...
On thursday mine tried to do it again, and with one hand on his neck, the other one using the one rein stop, he can't continue, he has to stop. If you don't fall, he will not win good luck
