Same experience here haha been teaching alli to bow just as something to try, and so I don't have to find a big rock everytime I want to get on bareback. Shed done it properly only a few times. Farrier came and as soon as she got bored she tried to bow... One huge telling off and no more bowing lessons later, shel hopefully never think of doing that again! (Ive decided to learn to vault instaed haha)
As for spanish walk, its super flashy and cool looking, but I imgine it could encourage pawing, especially if treats are involved... Wouldn't want to bend down to put a bucket down for a horse and find a hoof flying towards my face... Perhaps its less likely to turn into impatient pawing if food isn't involved?
