Is there anyway the he can be put in a paddock next to a horse or the pony? That way they can communicate over the fence, while minimizing the scratches. Once they get more friendly with each other, you can put them together. There will be nicks and bumps, but until he learns manners, I would keep them separated.
There is one principle that should never be abandoned, namely, that the rider must first learn to control himself before he can control his horse. This is the basic, most important principle to be preserved in equitation - Alois Podhajsky
