I am currently training my trainer's 4 y/o green pony (which he bought for his daughter to ride and show in a short/mini stirrup class). It means a lot that he is giving me this privilege and i want to do a really good job with the pony. The only troubles i have been having lately is that at the canter he will either suddenly pull his head down applying much pressure on the bit or slowly increase the amount of weight he applies to it.I have tried martingales/rein sizzling ((slight tugging on the left and right reins for a few strides to put his attention on something else
