I have a 12 year old arab/quarter horse mix gelding. Whenever I try to mount him, he always steps to the right. Sometimes it takes me forever to mount up.

How can I teach him to stand still?

You could have someone hold him with a halter and lead rope? If he trys to move have them give the lead rope a slight tug. Thats how i got my mare to hold still.
