It's not about 'getting him to drop it", it's about correct riding from you at the jog lope, so he'll use his body correctly...which in turn allows his head to drop where it should based on his conformation.
PLEASE DO NOT SEE SAW THE REINS! All this mean is....you riding the head and trying to FORCE it to drop. You ride the horse's body, get your horse to drive deep with the round and raise the back. THAT'S how you get a "headset".
