my pony gets very fizzy when we get into the countryside and becomes very tense and quite naughty. if he thinks he wants to gallop he will either start going sideways and generally not listening to me or he will try to rear. if i continue to hold him, his rears will get bigger and i can no longer hold him so he ends up getting his own way and having a gallop. which i know doesn't help, which is why i need to try something else with him. now, i do love a gallop and he will stop at the end, but i would much prefer it if i was in control of where and when we gallop!! if anyone has any advice as to what to do, i'd greatly appreciate it. he is in a dutch gag, which is what he came with him. anything less than this and i hve no control whatsoever, believe me, i've tried!!
