I had a horse like that some time ago and what I did was similar to White Foot's method. The only difference is that I would pick up his foot for a moment and let it go before he had a chance to do it himself. Doing it that way, it was my idea not his. Little by little, I held it longer and longer until I could hold it for as long as I wanted, but it took time to get to that point - it wasn't an overnight fix. In the meanwhile, he had to be twitched to trim him.

I never did figure out why he did that but I got him as a 10 year old and he came with a suitcase full of problems. I fixed them one by one and sold him as the very nice horse he had become.
