You don't need to corner him, you can do the same thing in a bigger area, it's just more tiring for you. My horse is in a 5 acre pasture as well and sometimes she just doesn't wanna get caught haha So along the same lines as the others mentioned, as soon as I can see her pinning her ears, or showing signs of turning away, I will run at her and smooch and chase her off for about 10 strides. She usually goes off to some far corner to pout, so I'll walk out there with my shoulders relaxed and acting very calm and if she acts like she's going to take off again, I run at her and push her away for as long as I can. Then repeat. It usually only takes once or twice before she gets tired of being run off and she'll let me walk up to her. Make it hard work for them not to come with you, and easy for them TO come with you.
