My horse is supposed to do bows to stretch out his back, as well as massaging certain spots and doing neck stretches. I keep forgetting to ask the equine massuese (sp?) though. How far is too far? He LOVES his treats, and will stick both front legs straight out with his head between his legs all the way with his nose touching the floor to get the treat. Is the further he goes better, or after a bit does it stop stretching his back and just become a trick?
Heres a picture kind of like what he does (it's not him), but he has his head between his legs, reaching under his belly for the treat.
