I don't disagree with Cherie on how you might fix the problem, though I wonder why "most serious trainers" have to do this? Ray Hunt would say don't ruin that horse's desire to help you, you take away his interest in doing what you want him to do by drilling him, training on him. He said you kill that horse's try by not accepting and rewarding the smallest change, and the slightest try. Now you need to beat some effort back into that horse, and if you don't change your approach that caused this in the first place, pretty soon that horse will be totally soured and it'll be tossing it's head, pinning it's ears, and swishing it's tail every time you ask it to do something.
