How to Train Your Horse to Lie Down POSITIVELY – No Ropes, Just Rewards!

I’ve always wanted to teach my horses to lie down on cue, but I’ve also had reservations about it, too – so many horses are forced or contorted into the lie down, which is horrible to do and, for me, entirely ruins the magic of your horse lying down with you. So, I decided to train it in a more relaxed way by ‘capturing’ it and building from there.

In this video, you’ll learn my approach to teaching the lie down using clicker training, or positive reinforcement, so that my horses enjoy the process and love to lie down!
