I had the same problem with my horse, only it was the right front.
Have you tried pushing your elbow into the back of his knee? It didn't work for me until a while after I got him picking it up a different way, but whenever he's being like that now, it does work.
OR maybe forcing him to take a step back, and when he does, grab his foot before he has a chance to put it back down?
I'm trying to remember the way I forced him to pick up his right front when he didn't want to, but I'm drawing a blank. I'll edit this if I remember... (:
