Also I meant he seems to do better plow rein than neck reining.
    Every time you handle a horse, be it on the ground or in the saddle, you are training him.

    I second the suggestion of getting a bit which is going to better communicate what you want, as your current tom thumb is not working by your own admission. And I would certainly expect a horse who has only been ridden 10 times in the past 3 years to need a tune-up. If he is not wanting to stop in the current bit, I don't understand why you would call him lazy.

    Snaffle bits have always worked wonderfully for me, both on and off of the trail. I would suggest them to anyone, whether the horse is a very mellow and obedient mount, or one who has quite an attitude. A few other people have suggested the same thing, so I'd say to try that one out!
