I would squeeze him with my legs, raise my hands and widen my hands and reins and force him straight......then once he's straight I'd lower my hands and reward him....as soon as he starts leaning on me or being a dink I'd pick him up again.....let him make the mistake, correct him and give him an opportunity to do what you want, reward him with release and the. Give him the opportunity to do the right thing....if he dives off, pick him up again. I would also work on getting him yielding all body parts, haunches, shoulders etc.....so he's not 'ignoring' you and goofing off;)
