A horse will only be well behaved if he feels he can trust his "leader" (whether it be horse or human)... otherwise his behavior will be geared towards taking over... and taking control.

If your personality makes you a more timid person (or past experience has shown you to be more cautious with him) then you are allowing fear to take hold of you... that fear is picked up by your horse, and then it's amplified and expressed as "bad behavior". Either you need to adjust that about yourself, or get a less challenging horse.
I know that what I need to do, I am not sure how to adjust it about myself. It's not that I don't reprimand him etc and I don't ***** foot around him either. I know he picks up on my lost confidence, I am trying to get it back.

I've heard the name but I don't recall having ever seen any of his stuff.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/
