    I cheat. I use a bucket of feed. A+M feed or some pellets, you can even use chopped up apple and carrots. They learn that the bucket means some good stuff, and will usually follow that bucket any where. As a last resort use the feed bucket let the horse put its head into the bucket , while it is being held by the handle, and a lariat noose is held in line with the bucket, I used a cotton lunge line, and after a few tries the horse was 'caught' from there we got a halter on it. Now we did have a bit of a 'fight' and freak out, and make sure that the lasso wont choke the horse or you have an ever bigger mess .

    The day I start walking a horse down is even if he'll approach me, I may even shoo him off again. Moving a horse away reinforces it's desire to be with you. I know he won't let me circle behind because he's got his eyes glued to me so I will approach making shooing motions with my hand and he'll move his front end. The horse may trot off a little and usually will turn to watch me. I may continue to do this until after trotting off he turns and comes to me. Because it's in a horse's nature to test it's position in the hierarchy, he may test me again altho it's usually pretty short-lived. He's figured out that the only way to get me to stop driving him is to come to me. I will turn my back to completely release the pressure on him.
