What cues are you using? Are you using your spurs first? If so, what would you up the pressure with?
Since you are riding in an arena, I would do what is called the cruise control exercise. Don't worry about controlling where the horse goes, just his speed. He can go where ever he wants. Best if you are the only ones in the arena. All you are going to do is say how fast or slow he goes. If he stops, squeeze, cluck, spank. At first, you will do all three. As you practice this, he will start responding sooner to just your leg cues.
