You could also try tacking him while you lunge. Let him know its work time not play time? I've always had good luck with getting my horses to focus by lunging them in a surcingle with side reins attached to their bit or a cavason. But I wouldn't suggest it if you don't know how to use them/ don't have someone to show you the correct way.
Good Luck with him! Don't forget to update us on him. :)
I've never used a surcingle. I rode him for the first time here today(2nd time riding him). I only trotted but he did well. I've still got to learn his cues, and teach myself to sit back more.
