Make sure that there are times that you call him up and do absolutely nothing that resembles work. Groom him, give him treats, hand graze him, give scratchies, do anything you want..but don't climb on his back, don't put him in the round pen. If he learns that calling him up will only mean work, he won't be really thrilled about coming. Make being with you the place he WANTS to be.
I'm not a complete idiot--there are parts missing!
What you have become is the price you paid to get what you used to want.
