I just slapped the horse lightly on the chest while saying back. To date, they all have moved, and then I kept them moving with a bit of halter pressure. If you start shaking a lead rope in Mia's face, she'll think you are a psycho. She won't be mean, but she won't back and she will get very nervous.
I strongly suspect the nose tipping trick would work as well.
