Well I'd suggest that you touch his legs every day, pick up his hooves and rub him and praise him when he does well. Do not treat him, because then he'll just be looking for treats and won't stand still. But make sure he stands still with whoever is touching him. If you can, maybe try lounging him or just taking him for a walk before you get his hooves done. I usually warm my gelding up a bit because he is like a child with ADHD. He is fine having his legs picked up/touched but just can't stand still that long!
And if you have him somewhere where there are many people around, maybe ask others if they could help you by picking up his feet and such. (Make sure it's people who know horses at least, not just someone completely uneducated who might hurt themselves/the horse.
Just my suggestions. :3
