I don't know everything about training the horse to do a spanish walk, but I will give a word of warning. I leased a horse that had been trained to do it and he would sometimes use it as a bit of an evasion whenever we asked for him to move his shoulders. Basically "I don't know what you want me to do, but maybe you'll be happy if I do a spanish walk for you".
So, while it's cool, it might get old if your horse does it all the time when you're trying to get him to do something else. It may also just be a matter of making sure your cues are very specific.
((Lol, just saw a warning at the bottom of the eHow page that the horses usually like it once they learn it. Definitely true for the horse I leased!))
