I'd say just keep him working on a 4 beat walk like you've been doing. His muscles will eventually get used t it and it will become easier for him to walk that way. It may just take time for his muscles to adjust! :)
Riding a horse is not a gentle hobby, to be picked up and laid down like a game of solitaire. It is a grand passion. It seizes a person whole and, once it has done so, he will have to accept that his life will be radically changed.
