Unfortunately, I have to disagree with you there.
Yes... He does need a more experienced rider. Why? Because if you were able to handle him, you wouldn't have posted here.
There is a difference between a rough patch and dangerous. I once had a pony that I too, thought was perfect. She bucked me off, and several times, she almost killed me. I thought it was a rough patch... But every single bit of confidence that I had ever gotten was utterly gone. She got worse. If I hadn't have given her up, who knows what might have happened. So yes, you actually can get somewhere by admitting defeat, and moving on. I can tell you, that absolutely no horse in the world is perfect. You would never have asked if your horse was perfect. You wouldn't have these difficulties.
I know it's hard to hear... Trust me... I do, but sometimes you just have to face up to facts.
I hope you find a solution, what ever your choice.
