Ok, so instead of making a bunch of topics related to training this horse, I thought I would just post all my questions here.
First off, how do you get a horse to stand still in cross ties?! Every time I put him in the cross ties, he never will stand still. He either walks forward or backs up until the lines are as far as they reach, then he stops. It is extremely annoying. I think he does it because he wants his head next you. I stood next to him, trying to figure why he does it, and he backed up until his head was next to me.
This is one of the most obnoxious things he has done so far!
