You need to get him doing roll backs for key. I taught my horse by walking her along a fence line, stopping and backing her into my open outside hand and leg. (asking for a back and turning into the wall). You want your horse to initially start backing out and turning on the hind. Once your horse starts turning off and begins lifting up that front end, start bumping up speed. Eventually you want your horse lifting up over its hocks and bringing its front end around.
