He's a bit cute!!
Main thing is that you really need to ride him up into the bridle as he's running through the contact in the first photo and on the forehand, and in the second he's not tracking which shows that he's not engaging his hing legs, and it sitting behind the vertical so is sucking back from the contact.

I'd be doing MILLIONS of transitions, changes of rein and also starting so lateral work. Start with leg yield as I'd say this is the easiest to understand for both horse and rider. Get it down pat in walk then start in trot.
From leg yield you can move to shoulder fore, then shoulder in.

Serpentines, shallow loops, thousands of trot-canter-trot transitions will all help you with getting those hind legs engaged.
