how do you go about teaching that? just giving them something funky to smell, giving the command, and then treating?

Also, a lot of horses respond well to a tickle on their nose and a reward if they smile. I have my yearling colt getting the hang of the same thing. It is really fun to teach, as well as something funny to show friends that come over.
