his own; everything he does must be
your idea and initiated by you.
If your horse starts to walk off on
his own, correct him instantly and use
a word such as “stand” spoken sharply.
Back him up with a quick tug.
As soon as he stands still after the
correction, offer praise. Don’t allow him
to turn away, and don’t walk him in a
circle to reposition him. This will only
teach him that walking off is an option.
If you’re alone and you have a
horse that tries to back up or swing
his hips out away from the mounting
block, try using a corner of a paddock
so that the fence blocks these actions.
Always correct quickly and reward
quickly. Impeccable timing is necessary to get good results in a short
period of time.
Take your time with this first step.
While it may seem simple, it will set
your horse up for success.

The first introduction to the mounting block should be calm.
Allow the horse to see and sniff it.
