The cue is scratching between her front legs, but you can't really teach to bow without manipulating their body to show them what you want first. First it was manipulating her body, then a combination of foot, tug, and chest, then just foot and chest, and then just tickling her chest. It's much easier that way, otherwise your going to spend hours poking a horse and hoping it does what you want. O_O
Also, she still picks her feet up fine, and won't try to bow unless you ask with a tickle. =]
