    Try going to your local book store and picking up a book about it.

    I've tried before to teach Gunther how to say yes and no, but it didn't work. Him and myself don't have the attention span to learn haha.

    If your horse is food motivated, that's the easiest way.

    I've taught hug, where the horse wraps its head around you. Kiss, which involves trusted that your horse will lick your face and not bite it. Shake, you use a leadrope to pick up the leg after you say "shake" and then give a treat- usually only takes a few days.

    My friend taught her baby, Ritz, to lie down, roll over, fetch, come, and sit (sometimes). Ritz is basically a very large dog. Horses are really smart, they'll learn anything.

    I don't like a full bow though, it hurts their knees.

    I taught one of ours to lay down.

    Our mini also ' shakes hands ' , nods , and stands up ( supported )

    Time and patience are required - as is an ability in the horse to learn such things, some horses learn to do tricks very easily - others find it more difficult.

    You have to start off small , and reward when small ammounts of progress are made - don't expect too much too soon.
