I would asked for the canter, he would do some of his hopping around and then he would settle into a nice little fast lope, slow canter. After about 3-4 times of starting new circles and cantering, he wouldn't do it when he first started. Now, as to the cause I can easily say that it's just spooking. See... There's this baby killdeer...
They run around and play something that resembles an insane game of marco-polo.
Anywhos, Eddie doesn't like scary birds so he spooks at them. Poor fella... Maybe we'll have to try some de-spooking with birds and flying things.

It is He who sits above the circle of the earth,
And its inhabitants are like grasshoppers,
Who stretches out the heavens like a curtain,
And spreads them out like a tent to dwell in.
