    A lot of people are jumping on the "walking into" thing, I don't mean he PUSHES them I mean he just like walks forward till he can't anymore, my fault for badly wording it, its kind of hard to describe to you :/

    I've tried most of the things suggested except the circling thing which I wasn't sure about cause I have known horses to circle when you try to mount and I was cautious to circle him.

    Got enough answers for now, thanks for all replies

    What Tiny said! I only have one other suggestion to try - when on the ground and preparing to mount, my trainer has me grab the saddle by the cantle and wiggle it around. Not enough to actually displace it but enough to help with desensitizing. This would go along with the suggestion to lay your weight in the saddle. Once the horse doesn't move when I do this, I get on. The big take-away is to praise when he does something good. Even if its for one second.
