Teaching a horse to stretch out her front legs (like in Spanish walk)

So, preparing for winter (why am I thinking of that in summer??) I'd like to teach my horse to do tricks whist its too snowy/icy to ride.
I'd like to teach him to stretch out each foreleg in turn (like in Spanish walk) when I point at them

Could someone please give me a step by step guide on how to do this? I couldn't find it on Google :/

Thanks

The sites I've looked at include a whip and the rest are blocked
I didn;t put the whip bit in...sorry!

Subbing.

My horse was started on the Spanish walk before I bought him, but I haven't been able to get him to do it. He also knows how to do a cat stretch but will only do it on the cross ties when I don't ask him to do it. The only thing he'll do on command is bow.

I found this not long ago, just searching horse tricks. I haven't tried it yet, but sounds simple.
