    I agree with everything Loosie said. The approach and retreat method has worked great for me - reward the slightest flicker of interest or acceptance at first. Have you tried Linda Tellington's TTouch methods? There are some simple touches that horses love that help them relax. You could use the approach and retreat method, start with TTouches on his neck and shoulders and work rearward and up, as he learns to enjoy the touches, so that eventually you will be working with his back.

    I watched the video of the lady training the black mustang, and while it was really cool to watch, I wish that she had made her release of pressure more obvious to me and the horse. She kept swinging the flag, even when he was stepping over. When did he earn a release?
    When the stick was on the horse and the idea was that when he stopped flieeing he would get a release from the pressure, I didnt' see any realease. In fact, he stopped and she started scratching him with it. Hm? She said she would take the stick off when he stopped, but I didnt' see that.
