Help with bowing?

I'm teaching my TB mare to bow. She's overall doing very nicely and progressing quickly, but she always has her non-bowing leg bent. I know this isn't terribly good for her, and I would love for to her to master the picture perfect bow, but I don't know how to straighten it, considering I still have to guide her knee down. Is there an easy-ish way to fix this, or will I have to wait until she can do the bow on a voice command or at least without assistance before I can manually help straighten her leg?
Any suggestions are appreciated. :]

Below is the picture of her current bow, and you can pretty easily see the bent-leg problem...
