a couple things. First, he's probably sore.
second, you REALLY need to cultivate balance in your training. Asking a horse to do spins for an entire session would be like you having a personal trainer telling you that you need work on your core strength, then forcing you to spend an entire 1 hour session doing sit ups. Not only would you be in pain, and sore for a long time there after, you would be pretty ticked off at your trainer, and think that they were pretty unfair. The next time you went in, you would have bit of a grudge against your trainer, very sore muscles, and a strong dislike of situps.
You need to back way up, ask for a little, reward, and move on, so he learns spins are ok again.
