Also, since you're having issues with him bringing his head up high, you may have problems teaching him to bring his head down with your fingers. You can also start teaching that with his halter and lead rope.
Hold the lead rope about 6 inches from the halter. Put some pressure straight down on the rope. You're not trying to pull his head down but just create some pressure on his pole. Hold the pressure steady and follow his head. Don't pull harder if he brings his head up or moves to the side. He's just trying to find the release. As soon as he drops his head, even just a little, release your hand right away. Try again.
