I'd call that a cheating bow...to teach them to get right down, lift the front leg on the side you're on. So if you stand on the horse's left side, life it's left front leg and then offer the treat between their front legs, let them lean back and they *should* go down on one knee to get the treat.

That however, is a good start!

My girl does the same thing. I haven't figured out how to get her to bend her knees but she goes all the way down to the ground when she bows like this.
Great start!

The green stands out a bit but other than that it's pretty cool.
