leg stretchs, pull ups, slow dismounts, different boots these can all help.
Remeber to never pull yourself up, it can cause issue and the horse will move. I bounce several times,I am not sure what style you ride in, but I never grab the horn.
I would put your horse between you and the block and lung. If he stands tied well put the block next to him, put it in his stall next to his feed. And if he still figets when you are ready to mount then everytime he tiem he takes a step work him. He will learn its easier to stand next to it then to be worked.
Don't breed, buy. Don't buy, adopt.
