HORSE TRICKS (how do you teach it?)

I want to teach my horse tricks!

My trainer has been working with Splash for a while, so all I get to do with him is groom. I love to groom him, and he loves to be groomed, but I want to do more!

I was thinking...
Smile
Bowing
Laying down
Hug
Kneeling


I really want to try laying down, can anyone tell me how to teach this???

Thanks.

Foal
I taught my youngster "Bandit" to bow. It was actually super easy! I started with a long carrot and began by knocking it on the back of the knee gently. It helps to take a bite of it first so they can smell the carrot. As he went for the carrot I would say a command "take a bow" and let him nibble pieces off the carrot each time. As he got the hang of it I kept moving the carrot farther and farther down his leg, all the while using the same command every time I would "knock". Eventually he would go all the way down and I had to start using smaller treats that I would place on the ground (a berry good or something).
