Yeah then he's probably using his back then! When a horse is off the forehand, you'll feel him get lighter on the front and heavier in the back. My horse is still green so I haven't felt it yet but a few times when I asked for the canter, he scooted his butt underneath for a few seconds and it felt crazy powerful.
Make sure you keep your horse balanced with those half halts and keep asking for forward. He'll get there eventually!
