    Just keep in mind, teaching your horse tricks is easy if they have incentive to try;-)

    Best thing to is NOT to go catch them. Take a little time and teach your
    horse to come to YOU on command. Saves a lot of legwork and
    frustration. Both of my horses come on command and drop their head into
    the halter. I've called Sunny out of a herd of 30+ horses.

    It's not difficult, just takes time....This is "basically" the technique
    I use....with some additions and refinements! :)
