I summoned an assassin horse, and now I can't get it to stop following me. It's making it very difficult to do anything. How can I make it leave me alone, or at least just stand and wait for me?

Just go somewhere he can't. Like up a cliff or over some water or fast travel. The horse despawns when you get somewhere between 50 and 100m away from it.

My favorite was getting it stuck on a rock. For some reason it'd let me hop up onto rocks but not hop down from them. It's just stand there. – animuson Jan 1 '13 at 2:18
@animuson: Somehow I managed to get my horse to follow me onto a fallen tree. Then it was stuck standing upright in a weird angle (rotated on the tree). – Jeff Mercado Jan 1 '13 at 9:38
This would never work on Skyrim horses. – Alex Jan 1 '13 at 19:06

Depending on your position and how hard it is to get back there i would advise to just teleport away using your map to a location mark and then get back where you were. This will take care of the horse.
