Since you've only had him three weeks, I suspect, as you spend more time with him and he gets to understand and recognize the routine, he will settle. I find with a couple of my horses that the first few times at the start of "riding season" they will be restless but that soon disappears once they get back into the swing of things.
I might suggest that if he does get too rammy with you, perhaps you might want to untie him, do some ground work exercises (eg circles and yielding quarters to you, etc.) with a view to getting him to move his legs plus de-energize him abit then return him to the post - he may realize the error of his ways, be glad of the rest and stand quieter then.
