If I do have lead on I make him quickly trot circles but when I only have bridle on I am not sure what to do.
    If they move forward, I back them up. If they move back, I make them turn on their haunches until they stand still.

    If they move when mounting, I usually make a circle back to my starting point and try again. If they move again, I repeat until they stand still. They usually tend to get bored with the circling.
