An excerpt from "Round Pen First Steps [Downloadable PDF version]":
Stop about halfway across the pen and kiss to the horse. If he simply stares at you, then get those hips moving (one side, then the other, as earlier) to give him the idea that we want him to move forward. You might also try simply sending him off, then immediately asking for an inside turn, suggesting with your body language that he turn in and come to you. He'll quickly begin to associate your kiss with "come" and all you need to do is gradually increase the distance from which you make your request. Teaching the horse to trot or even lope to you is simply a matter of sending the horse out and around at your chosen gait then asking for the inside turn as before. If the horse is in a stopped position when you ask for him to trot or lope to you and he simply walks, then put some energy into him to suggest "speed up." Send him back around at a higher clip if need be; the energy you put in is the energy you'll get out. Which bring up an excellent and final point: Don't teach a horse with any sort of aggressive tendencies to come at you with speed. (rpt)
