I agree with Franknbeans my horse does as I say, when and as I say it. He gets very little say in the relationship and that is how it should be.
All my horses are happy to see me, they all want to be around me because they are secure in thier position in the herd.
Reeco is so happy to see me that he will canter to me in the field 100% of the time. The rest all come to call (normaly much faster then at walk), they all whinney everytime I see them. I can sit in the middle of the field and ponies will come and stand with me. I've walked up to stan who was lieing down in the field, sat down next to him and he shoved his head in my lap for petting. All give cuddles and kisses and go everywhere with their ears forwards. Go in a trailer? of course they go in the trailer!, go in a strange stable, yep do that too. Walk under a curtain of rattly beads (fly curtains for commercial kitchens)? yep no problem. Give kisses and cuddles, yep that too, infact they all love kisses and cuddles.
RIDE your horse FORWARDS and keep him STRAIGHT
