Lying Down?

I'm about to get a horse and I'd like to teach him to lie down. Leia, the last horse I owned, was taught as a foal (with my help :] ) to lie down as part of imprinting, so when I owned her as a 4-7 year old, I could get her to lie down easily. But I am getting a 15.1hh gelding and I'd like to teach him, too but Its harder to teach a big horse than it is to teach a foal. What's the easiest way to teach a horse to lie down?

*I ask this because I'd like him to trust me completely and its also pretty cool to be able to make your horse lie down :P
