How to teach a horse to stand still while you mount.
Start the video, then click on the “gear” icon at the bottom of the player to change the picture quality. I recommend the highest setting, 480p.
For horses that walk BACKWARDS when mounting:
Make sure your reins aren’t tight, causing the backing.
Place the horse’s butt in a corner so he can’t back up (repeat until the backing habit is broken)
As soon as you mount, immediately walk the horse forward.
In severe cases, you may need to use a “butt rope” to help fix the problem.
Drape a looped rope over the horse’s hindquarters and when he starts to back up, tug on the rope to bring him forward.
