Like Tayz posted, it is so much easier when you have an instructor giving you hands on help. You can gets tips and pointers from forums and videos however without someone there watching and instructing you, there is too many variables to factor in. Save yourself the aggravation and get some lessons, it will be the best money you ever spent on your horsey pursuits.

I'm not sure if the OP's horse is an OTTB (ex racehorse) or maybe came off a big yard/barn but if he did then he would have been treated in a no nonsense fashion because they don't have the time for Drama Queens. He's suddenly feeling his feet and testing the water to see how far he can push things and trying where he can to call the shots. I actually like a horse with this sort of character because it means he's smart and when you use that on your terms you end up with a really interesting horse that is capable of learning a lot more than a robot type
I like Carolyn Resnick but I think the Parelli approach would just irritate him - he needs really structured work not a lot of games - he knows exactly what to do - he just doesn't see why he should be doing it right now.
If he's been bullied in the past into work rather than encouraged to work willingly then like most horses that have been trained that way the moment they realize they have an owner who is less confident they become the bully - a bit like children of abusive parents often become abusers themselves
I'm not an aggressive person but if a horse tries to pull a dangerous stunt on me then its going to get one heck of a whack that it wont forget in a hurry - and then we can move on.

yes he is an ottb, hes been off the track just under 1 yr, i also have 2 instructors, 1 who works with ottb's, whose very blunt, and doesnt take sh*t from them, she had him very good, he then went to another person, who i live with, who was training him for a hack, he was getting good, but was rushed into hack, he then got laid off work for 2 months,as owner wanted her other horse back and thats when problems started when he got use to not working .
ppl i live with their type of lunging is just going in a circle to get energy out,
i dont want to just do that i want to put in place cues, i am the only one who beleives and likes NH

hes not use to groundwork, the lunging he was getting prior to me getting him were side reins, which he almost flipped himself over on his back.

our farrier loves miover's quirkyness, and personality,

This is very disturbing for me. Did you have someone help you put these on? I am not convinced you are ready to deal with a horse at this level of training. You don't seem to know exactly what you are doing, even with an instructor. You really need a dead head for your level of expertise.
