What tack set up are you trying to sung him with (length of lead, lunge whip?)
First I would get him to back away from you. Once he has a good back up cue get him backed up about 10 ft or so away from you, then point the direction you wan him to go, if he doesn't go, raise your lunge whip toward his shoulder/neck and apply pressure until he moves off. Start by gently shaking the whip 1-2-3-4, if he doesn't go tap his neck 1-2-3-4 and if he still doesn't go give him a good solid whack on the neck- as hard as you need to, but keeping rythm until he moves off. You may have to really give him a good whack with the end of the lunge whip to get him to move, but as long as you remember to ask with as little pressure as possible and release the instant he moves off you'll be able to get him moving with your initial ask eventually. So long as you give fair warning, it's fair, don't just go smacking him out of the blue though!
