Teaching a horse to stand while mounting video??

I once watched a video someone posted (tinyliny maybe??) about how to teach your horse to stand while mounting without leaving the mounting block that was absolutely amazing and I cannot seem to find it anywhere! My mom is having issues with her mare and no matter how much explaining I do I know watching that video would make it "click" for her, if I could just find it!

I'm not sure where the video is, but I do have a suggestion for you I wrote (taken from another post)

I've been training a horse that's almost the same way. She likes to move her butt away from the mounting block. At first I tried to walk her around the mounting block three times each time she did it. I got sick of it though since I shouldn't be the one having to do the work and it just irritated her.

I would make her do short (30-60 second lunges) every time she tried it. If she even moved her legs a little in the opposite way I would send her out and make her canter/trot in a tight circle, then bring her in. Tried mounting her again, if she moved her feet I would send her out again. I repeated this until she stood quietly for me to mount. It didn't take her long to figure out that standing was much easier.

I would do the same with this horse. When he moves, at all, send him out on the lunge line right after he does it. You may even want to keep a halter under the bridle and keep a lunge line or lead rope on hand. Make him work for a minute or so (hard) and bring him in. Do it until he stands nicely while you get on. It may take awhile but it's worth the effort and he will finally figure it out. When you do manage to get on, make him stand for a long time. I'd say 5 minutes, more or less. You actually may want to take a couple days and just do this. Mount, dismount, lunge, etc. for the whole lesson. Never let him get away with moving his feet, no matter how small the movement.

Hopefully someone can find the video for you though

Why don't you just PM Tiny and ask if the video is still around?

Horsrloverd2: that is how I taught my mare to stand, I had to do it a whole entire one time for her to get the picture. However this particular mare has a fused hock and so lunging and things along those lines are not a good idea for her. This video was a really cool way to get the horse to come to you, which is why I'm looking for that one in particular :) thank you so much for your response though!

Guys,

My videoette wasn't really about making a horse stand while mounting. It's about moving a horse up to the mounting block and doing it without yourself having to move the block, get on and off it, or otherwise fiddle around there. It might not help if you horse is really bad about standing while mounting. That might be an issue that required you to be able to move him around until he offers to stand, and so you'd have to step off the block and work with him.

The video is really poor quality and hard to hear. It's a neat trick, and I am tickled that you want to see it (Mac, the horse steals the show) but it isnt' meant to teach a hrose how to stand quietly. Still, it might work if the horse is not really bad about it and you have the patience to work with it for as long as it takes.

Here it is: Help with mounting from mounting block
