The same way you would the front. Move the horse a small step forward and backward (back and forth) until they are even. If your horse is really bad at it, at first I'd set up the hind legs, and then place the front feet where I want them by lifting them up and putting them there. After that give the horse a pat or a scratch and just stand there with it for a while, maybe practicing your showmanship motions. The horse will learn that when it stand, squared up, there's no nit picking and he can just chill.
