Try cleaning his sheath? They get a little build up of smegma on the tip of the "organ" and it's like a bean..it can in severe cases, close off the urethra and they can't pee. Better yet, call a vet and have him/her show you how to do the sheath...lol...
I have been training horses for many years. Over the past 4 years I have been using the Parelli method. What I have been able to accomplish with that is amazing!!!! I would suggest that if you are wanting to do this yourself (and never having done this before) I would suggest looking into Parelli or another homestudy type program that will walk you through it step by step. Go to www.Parelli.com You can find his level 1 (which is all you would need of the knowledge to go through ground and under saddle) on e-bay for much cheaper! Just check it out on the website first so you know exactly what you are looking for.
