My mare had the same problem this is what I did.. Everytime you clean that foot do a quick clean. Once he pulls away, let him, and drop it. Go do the other feet and then always come back to the one that's bothering him. Once he gets used to you cleaning it everyday, the longer he will let you hold it up. And make sure you reward him after!

Usually horses have a problem with the back feet, you should get it checked out.

People always say "don't let him pull away because then he will think he can do it every time", that isn't true. I learned not to fight with it because the more you do, the worse the problem will get. And on top of that it isn't worth you or your horse getting hurt in the process.
