    I never thought of that, I'll try this tonight.

    Walking him down does work, but it takes hours with him. We are both so stubborn that I will literally spend over an hour out in the pasture doing that with him before he finally does it. Even in a round pen
    If I don't have a halter he'll do it right away.

    Kama, keep your halter and lead in your left elbow and don't try to hide it. If you check this training site I've explained in detail the correct way to walk a horse down and why it works.
