The other thought is that he just doesn't want to listen. That's my case at least. Be consistent and don't stop until he has relaxed. This may take a while and you might have to push him a bit but he needs to learn to respect you and the lunge line. Just a thought..
I don't think it's that he doesn't want to listen, I think it's more of him being incredibly stubborn. Once, the torrential rain cuts the crap, I am going to be more consistent with him. Thanks momo3boys.

that just made me think countrygirl91. Maybe it could be the reins that are maybe confusing him?.. He is in a snaffle bit right now and I don't have a lunge line with a chain. I run the line through the bit and up the other side to the bit.
I'm at a standstill right now because, of the rain though
