An excerpt from "Round Pen First Steps [Downloadable PDF version]":
If you can't lay a hand on him yet, if he keeps dodging your approach, then use what you've learned to repeatedly drive the horse toward you , making him stand there, "his eyes glued to you": Stand to the side and drive his hips away (remember to get the back foot closest to you to cross in front of the other), then move to the other side of the horse and do the same. Use this simple technique to keep "edging him forward," toward you. As when you taught the horse to come to you, you may also try sending him back around the pen a few times or asking for several quick inside turns in order to motivate him to come up with a proper answer. (In this case: Be near me; don't move away.) Either method works great to make the horse think that standing and being petted is easier than working. If, despite your work, the horse won't let you touch it, ask yourself objectively if you aren't scaring it by coming at it too rapidly, it you're not petting it enough, if you might be "creeping about," or, even taking things too gingerly. Don't be afraid, if things seem to be stagnating, to try something completely the opposite of what you've been doing. (rpt)
