    You're already doing what he needs - grids. Just keep it up :)

    My horse comes from behind better if I put a ground pole 9' in front and 9' behind the obstacle. If yours has a long stride, 10' is better, but it makes them use their hind end better since they have to think about the poles in addition to the jump.

    Gymnastics gymnastics and more gymnastics! Esp bounces. Lots and lots of them. Right now in my ring I have : (bounce)(bounce)(2 stride)(bounce)(bounce)(bounce) and (bounce)(bounce)(one stride)(vertical)(2 stride)(oxer). Takes lots of poles but completely worth it. :)

    GYmnastics, but also get off his neck. By being over his center of gravity you are making his job more difficult

    ^ I was going to say the same thing. ^
    Also when you jump ahead, it makes it harder for him.
