I've had Dancer for about 2 months now and he's always been pretty good about mounting. When I first got him he would get nervous when I mounted so we did tons of exercises to help that and it did and the most he would do is immediately walk off when I got on him, which we worked on and he stopped. However, starting last week, he starts to back up whenever I put my foot in the stirrup. I'm getting frustrated and I don't know what to do. I've tried to make him back up as sort of reverse psychology. I then tried getting him to brace he rear feet. I've tried turning his hindquarters. I tried lunging him and getting him to listen to me. So far nothing as worked. I've resorted to backing him into a corner made with the gate and fence. I have a lesson with my trainer on Friday but was wondering if you guys had any suggestions.
