Sometimes these kind of difficulties are what makes someone a horseman.(or woman) You didn't know enough about riding and training, and how to actually use your aids. But now it sounds like you know a whole lot more now than you did just a few weeks ago. All the emphasis these days on: get off and do more ground work, because they really don't know how to ride that well. There are no quick fixes. It takes a lot of blood sweat and tears and discipline. I am glad to hear you have found a way to do these things from his back.
