Welcome to the forum.
A little more information. How old is the horse? How long did the last owner have him for and was he/she the one who trained him? Why did he use a hack instead of a bit? Have you checked his mouth?
IMO, with a horse like that, I would start from the beginning. I would fit him with a snaffle and teach him to turn. It may take a while to teach him who is in control - him or you.
I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.
Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
It's not always what you say but what they hear.
