Try to start with the lead rope. Slide it around the back leg and pull it up off the ground. Just before he goes resistant and wants to kick out or pull away let it go back to the ground. This way you teach him and staying safe yourself. I used it on both my youngsters.
BTW, interesting enough I had lots of issues with front legs on my qh, but back ones were very smooth. Paint was other way around. I started them both from zero (they were unhandled).
