Welcome to the forum - Pictures please?
He sounds freaking adorable - like my dream horse xD
As for flexing vs. steering - exactly what was already posted. One thing I practiced on the ground was when practicing flexing I also applied a little pressure where one of my feet would land in the saddle, expecting the horse to turn his head and shift his body at the same time. Practicing yielding both at the same time. I also practices a lot of line-driving (driving on the ground without a cart) to get the hang of voice commands and practice basic rein cues.
