    It's usually about claustrophobia. Tying removes his ability to escape. I agree with Boo, try tiring him out first then see how well he'll tie. He will begin to see it as a time to rest. The same advice helps if the horse wont' stand for the farrier.

    If the horse is dancing around while tied and you go to mount you're too late with the correction. He needs to be corrected on the ground.

    My gelding has the same issue after I unsaddle him. He now ties with a rope halter and everytime he starts to paw or set back I ignore him and let him stand there longer and longer. When he stand quietly I tell him good boy and then I release him. If you let him go while he is still being fidgety you are teaching him that its a good thing.
