I am also assuming this is the horse you have another thread on about how they get "spazzy" at a show?
The advice I gave you on the other thread applies to this as well. No matter what, he needs to correctly respond to what you ask of him at all times. And that is YOUR responsibility as the rider to accomplish that by being consistent. Horses learn best from consistency. If you allow him to get away with behavior one time, he learns that he never has to listen to you at any time. That's why it is critical to ALWAYS have him respond correctly to what you are cueing him to do.
