Another way to teach the sidepass
This seems to work well on most horses:
Start by teaching him to yield his hindquarters from the ground, both ways. Then to yield the front end both ways from the ground. Once he knows how to do that well, have him face a fence. Yield the front and then the back, then the front, then the back..... Keep practicing until he starts moving the front and the back together.
Then you can do the same thing from the saddle. Start with yielding the hindquarters, then the front, then go to the fence and alternate between front and back.
Before you know it, he'll be sidepassing like a dream!
