for the standing issue, what I do with my horse is that if she tries to move off before I get on I back her up several steps, I do this even if she just moves one step, it is just not allowed, if she mmoves again I back her up further until she decides backing up is too difficult and will stand still, I usually only have to do it twice and the most now and most of the time not at all.
For catching I don't know, I have small paddocks so it was never much a problem but I did join-up with my horse and now she walks right up to me rather than me having to go to her.
Diligent, loyal, strong
