Hi there and welcome to the forum!
In a dressage test, it is only the rider that 'saltues' the judge- not bow ;) This is normally with your left arm and hand held out and a bow with the head.
The horse, however, is round on the contact which is where you may be thinking the horse bows- the horses head and neck position should stay rounded for the entire dressage test as this shows correct position and that the horse is working correctly too.
A horse that actually bows, with one leg extended and another folded underneath itself is taught with 'trick training' and isn't a recongnised move in the dressage arena.
If you have any more questions, please ask! And I hope I've covered this enough for you!
