Hug
Bite things (I tried to get him to pick things up.....)
Come (More like "get over here, NOW")
Bow (by stretching, or on one knee)
Lay down
Rear
Push things (gates, balls, barrels)
Stay (whoa) its nice for cofo pictures without tack.....

I don't have photos of everything, maybe I'll do that one day. o.0 Anyhow here is what I do have pictures of.


Your horse knows very nice tricks! I love the hug, it's so cute!
Did you learn him to lay down out of rolling?
About the bow(on one knee), I think your horse should learn the 'split' too. Do you even have a name for this in english? It's when the frontlegs and hindlegs are far apart from each other. You can see my post on page 3 with pictures of my horse. Your horse moves his weight perfectly to the back, but he doesn't have enough space to stretch his front leg as you can see. I think if he has more space it would be a nicer bow
He responds perfect to you, really nice! :) Do you have youtube with vids about the tricks?

Sorry! Bad english.. feel free to correct me (:

Thank you! The hug is his most recent ones, he likes that one. Hehe.

Nope, I taught it by first the bow then teaching him to roll over from there. He pretty much bows then flops over like a dead fish. I've tried to get him to gracefully do it, but to no avail. I don't do it often because he isn't very fond of it and I think with his old age it isn't very comfortable.

I kind of just consider that stretching I guess. Jake actually chooses to keep himself so together, I always try to spread him out more so he doesn't have to bend his front leg as much, but he likes to have his hindquarters underneath him. I don't know, because he is older I let him choose how he does things. Lol.

I do but they are all old and rather crudely done. I need to get some new video, he does pretty much everything at liberty now. I'll make a post when I do happen to get the video, I probably will do that in two weeks when I have some time off during daylight hours.


Want to know the story? From The Start? It is a work in progress.
The $25 horse I didn't want.

But if he's stretched and then bows it's better for his back :) can't really explain in english haha.

Does anybody has tips for me? I want her to bow but she doesn't go down/move her weight to the backhand (just a liiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiittle bit).
I don't know is she finds it scary or she just doesn't do it. Is there anyone who had this problem too and now not anymore?
Can't get it better than this photo. Although I thought she did 1 time better but I can't look it back because my camera stopped filming.

To bow is to stretch - to quite an extreme level. Is your horse really that supple and ready to feel comfortable, stretching that far and low? I'd drop the bowing for a while and just work on stretching the horses' back and legs, and then return to the bow, but never asking more than the horse is ready to do. If it is just a centimeter - so be it, let it happen at the horses' pace.

I have come a long way, to surrender my shadow to the shadow of my horse.

I won't push her too far. Even if I want I can't :P
We do stretching exercises a lot, that isn't the problem. I am of course aware that the horse needs to be supple and I'm not asking her all the way down. She doesn't have to go 'that far'. Step by step we will work to the real bow. It's just.. I don't know.. Like she doesn't get it. And I don't know how I should ask her differently, so that's kinda my question. How to ask her. Because I know she physically can do the bow.

(about the link to an other forum, sorry I didn't know. I copied the text/picture because I asked it there too)

Logan gives kisses, shakes, and hugs...

I had a mare I used to rear, she never reared out of spite or attitude... Very distinct cue that you would've never stumbled on.



My four-year old I taught to lay down, she caught on the first day:





I don't think I have the patience to teach them the detailed tricks though. Even though I sure would love to.

Been trying to teach the mini's to bow / lay down, but they have no interest in treats so it's tough to motivate with just words.

You learn her that out of kneeling(on 1 knee)? And then, you just push her over or what? :P Haha I don't know.
I actually don't like the kneeling, the hindlegs should be straight. And the kneeled leg too, but I think that's becaus she was going to lay down. I think you shoud let her stretch first and then ask her to kneel :)
You could learn her to sit too haha or is that already on command?

The rear looks really controlled on this picture :)
Btw did you made that what he has on his chest? :P
