If your horse can lope slowly, which you said he can, then you need to give the proper cues to get that WP lope when you want it, not when he decides to give it to you. Basically you are at the horse's mercy right now when it comes to the lope, don't be embarrassed, we've all been there to some degree. You need an instructor to teach you the proper cues, as this goes way beyond the realm of this forum. Once you're working with an instructor, you will have so many "AH HAH" moments, you'll wonder why you didn't do this sooner, I promise you.
