horses head set

My horse seems to always stick his head in the air, and I want him to keep it nice, low and pleasure-like.. he's not hard on the bit, he puts his head down and flexs at the poll when I ask, but then it pops right back up..its not extreme or anything, its the way he naturally carries his head when running around in the field and whatnot.

I want him to start flexing at the jaw as well but I'm not sure how to go about it.. I'd like to do it without mechanical means as well, but if it comes down to it I am not opposed. Any advice?

Oh ok, lol. Well he's three, I'm training him myself with the help of a coach.. but atm I'm not in an area where the coach is.. so far we've been doing w/t/l, started with neck reining.. he bends at the poll when asked at walk and trot, but like I said it pops back up, so what do I just keep reminding him constantly?
