Tie down? Not if you want him to flip over next time he has a tantrum. Slow and steady, calm assertive daily work, W/T/C. If you feel uncomfortable working with him for the first week or so, please get a trainer to help you. Sounds like this horse just needs to be reminded who is in charge and what is expected of him. If I had the winter off, I'd be full of heck too.
