How can I get my horse to listen to verbal commands on the ground?

How can I get my horse to listen to verbal commands on the ground?
Just keep saying them and when he does that reward him big time
Give the verbal command as he does the action. Associate the action with the word and keep trying. Eventually reduce the amount of asking you are doing for the action and you'll then just have to say the command and he'll do it
Persistence helps. Every time you stop lets say make sure your verbal command is very clear. When your horse does it give lots of praise.
