First, the carrot stretch...

Then bowing...

Pics are taken from a video so they aren't very good. I'll post more as I get them. I trained her to do this all by myself. ^^ She's so smart.

Nice! My horse learned how to bow another way since I taught him to lay down first. He loves going it now because he knows when he lays down he can eat grass (as it sticks up into the side of his mouth) without me telling him no. What a dork!

Keep up the good work!

How did you get to the point where you have her leg down? I could only ever get Cocoa this far...

I had the same problem at first. What I did was take a rope and put it around her foot and lifted her hoof up. (Like you are going to pick it out with a hoof pick) and held the treat under her chest. At first I gave her treats for just trying, then I actually made her go down and she didn't get the treat unless she did. Eventually they'll do it without a rope, and then you can start using a command instead of treats to do it. And always wear a helmet, just in case they lose their balance or something.

If you ever do bows with any of your horses, I'd love to see more pics.
