It sounds like he is trailing with his back legs yes?? If so ground poles will make him pick them up and really bring them under him... Remember in a trot to really ride him.. and when I say that I don't mean get ya legs a flappin lol..I mean push him with your seat... If you need anymore help or need me to explain differently tell give me a yell :)

How long hould I ride him for??? Do I trot him at a slow trot or a fast trot?

With poles mabey 15 mins...not to much.. but if you normally ride for longer try poles for 15 mins.. go and do something else than go back to poles for another say 10 mins... slow trot is best..they can't learn anything when they are rushing.. but snot a slow old lazy trot .. you want a slow but motivated trot :) how does that sound?

Another thing that really works butt muscles and gets them using the back-end is trotting up hills. They really have to drive with that back end and it helps them build up that butt muscle and learn to use that hind end better which then expands over into flat work.
