Talking Horse Trick Training?

Hey y'all! I've just been SO excited to start trick training my horse! I know some tricks, like "smile", "bow", "yes", "no" etc, but I want to know some more and how you would teach them. Could someone give me a list of tricks? I really love showing off what my horse can do to my friends lol Thanks!!

All I pay my psychiatrist is the cost of feed and hay,
~♥~
he'll listen to me any day~♥~

My horse can hug and lay down, and my friend's horse can lay down and smile. My horse can sort of bow, but we just turned it into laying down fairly quickly and didn't work on it much!

I tried teaching my Arab to shake a hoof and it didn't go well. She just started lifting her leg whenever she wanted a treat so I had to cut that out!

A friend of mine has a stallion who will bow, tuck his head, smile, dance (my favorite =] the stallion moves all four legs in a sort of prance type thing without moving forewards), 'show me your feet' (where he lifts one leg and extends it towards you), spread out, lay down, and kneel. You could try some of those? =]

Yes! Thank you MM!

Check out some of her threads if you can. She has quite a few in the pictures section and they're fabulous. Should give you some ideas for things you could try with yours :)

Lets see Jake knows, Yes, no, paw, bow, lay down, something resembling a spanish walk (kind of a work in progress), push it (like balls or barrels), come and the taboo of everyone, for good reason, rear. All of these can be done from in the saddle or on the ground (except yes, no and come lol)

Ones that I am working on is pick it up, sit, dance, smile, follow the tail (following where the tail is being pulled) and circle. I think that is all for right now. o.0
