My horse had some time off, but he is now starting to get muscle back. Now, when we canter, he gets excited and starts going fast, and I can't stop him. Any advices?

Hey Vanessa! The most important thing is working on traditions. From walk to trot, trot to walk, walk to canter etc. Horses can also sense if you are scared or nervous so try not to be afraid. And if you cannot make him/her stop use a pully rein or make him/her halt into the wall! Hope this helps!
Any suggestions?
