    I think that I am having a feeling of De Ja Vue'. I am sure that I read this post in another thread about making her bow :roll:

    That is what I was curious about. I was wondering what horselover was considering lying down. Bowing and lying down are in whole different ball parks.

    'lying down' a horse is something totally different. It consists of pulling a horse's head around until the pressure triggers what is thought to be an 'endorphin release' and the horse can be toppled over. It's very similar to what happens when predators bring a zebra down in the wild.
    It should never be used by anyone other that a professional, only in dire situations to help with very dangerous vices and even then only with caution as a last resort, as it doesn't really address the horse's problem. Problem is it's becoming a fashionable natural horsemanship technique now and everyone and their mother is trying it, rarely to the benefit of anyone.

    'Trick' lying down is cute. A different thing entirely.

    Well, I lie her down and roll her on her side.
