So I'm really busy and usually can get out to the barn twice a week tops.
Therefore, I always ride when I go to the barn.
Buttt yesterday I just decided I needed some bonding time with my pony, so I hung out with her in her stall for a while.
At one point, I tried to teach her to bow, because I had saw something on here about it and thought it would be a fun thing to do with her.
I started with putting the treat to the ground and she would put her head down to get it. When I tried to start moving it a little back [in between her front legs], she would just back up. If she backed up into the wall, she would turn her body a new direction and just back up to get the treat.
So, how did you teach your horse to bow? Did you have this problem?
