Training Your Horse to Sit Down

Hey, how would you like to train your horse to sit down?  This is a super easy trick to train and it is a good muscle building exercise.

Here are two videos of me training Jackson to sit down

Part 1

Part 2

This is a fun “trick” to teach.  If you want to learn it, this will teach you to have light hands and to learn lightness with your horse.  You can train it with a halter or with a neck rope or with no tack.  It can be done totally at liberty.  This is one of those tricks that can’t be forced on a horse.  Just pushing harder doesn’t help you reach your goal sooner.  I learned that valuable lesson when I trained this.

If you want to learn more, sign up for my trick training email list here.  I have a new video coming out in a week or two showing every training session of training this horse to sit down.  If sign up by email, you will receive a notice as soon as it comes out.

  1. Thank you so much Ivy, yes I remember seeing these videos. Funny, Magik has reacted the same way as in your first video. Hope he continues and sits like in your 2nd video. Thanks so much. Jocelyne
