Unfortunately I think you're being a little unrealistic regarding wanting him to run freely. He's a dog and he needs to be contained in the house/yard, or by an overhead tether system.

You've very lucky that he hasn't gotten more seriously hurt, or even shot at/killed. It's completely legal in most areas for a farmer to lethally shoot a dog that is chasing their horses or livestock.

Here's a link with videos to help you work on his recall (coming when called) for when you're supervising:

Ultimately though, he should not be left to roam without supervision.
