    Well, quite honestly I think that you are doing to much with him!
    I have been around racehorses most of my working life and when they are getting fit, yes they do get intensive training BUT it is nothing like three hours riding and an hours lungeing a day!

    The training routine for jump racehorses is something like this:-

    Monday - 1 1/2 hours hacking, walk and trot
    Tuesday - 1 1/2 hours work including cantering
    Wednesday - Work day - when they have a long gallop
    Thursday walking out 1 1/2 hours
    Thursday - hacking
    Friday - Cantering
    Saturday - Workday
    Sundays day off.

    The angle of the first picture is not good. Your horse looks well enough but he is greatly lacking in neck muscle. That needs building up.

    I think you are expecting to much of him by working him for so long every day.
