    For both I would take jmikes rope advise, it has never failed me. It helps communicate what is expected and that there is no ill-intent. Help the 3 yo learn how to balance by getting them in position. It takes patience. For example, if working on right front, make sure the opposing hind is a little behind the right rear.

    I have seen this happen alot. My mare does it too. If she starts kicking her feet or lifting them high of shifting their weight, I hold onto her hoof. Sometimes they need a good hop around the barn before they figure it out. Or like Saddlebag said, I take her out in an open space. I pick up her hoof and if she is being dumb I drop her hoof and make her run in tight circles. And if she stands nicely, I reward her. She is MUCH better now.
