Thanks AB-I started reading the other thread, and it was getting a bit defensive, to say the least. I have done carrot stretches with my guys for years. I do the between the legs one, but I do not do it as far as they pictured on the last thread, and I do it from each side. To do that one, I stand behind the shoulder, facing front, reach down with the treat and tap the upper inside of the front leg closest to me. My horses then know to put their head down between their legs to get the treat.
I also do one that I call "kiss your butt", where I touch them with the cookie on the upper flank-up by the top of the swirl.....they bend around to get the treat. Again, I do both sides.
My guys like it so well, that when I am done riding they start doing them on their own anticipating the treats!
