working with a lazy horse

I want to work with my barn owners lazy horse he is hard to get moving even with leading and to get him to back up with the wip does not work very well you can smack hi as much and as hard as you want but he doesn't care he is a very LAZY horse and bomb proof. He does pretty good with disingaging his hind quarters but that's it.

I need some advise thanks. :)

The "go" button on the horse has been temporarily disengaged. You must rebuild it. Take him to round pen and get him going when you say so and as fast as you say so and by the mear movement of your body and voice.
That will build some response into him.
Then he won't lag on the leadline so much.
That's just for starters!

sadly I don't have a round pen. What about lunging?
