How do I teach my horse to come to me by voice command?

How do I teach my horse to come to me by voice command?
My horses do it as soon as I open the hat
I would associate a noise with a treat. With one of my horses, I whisk
When you go out to your horse have a treat with you like a carrot or apple or something your horse likes and stand about 2 metres in front of him and just show him you have a treat and call him name and if he doesn't come go closer let him smell it so he knows you have it then walk a couple steps back and continue calling him then he'll probably come to you and then give them the treat and praise eventually they'll know they get a treat when they come so they'll look forward to seeing you also when calling him don't look directly into his eyes cuz that can make a horse feel threatened look at his nose or feet or something
