Its called "parking out", used in showing minis, Morgan's, walkers, I think it is to show a flat topline or something. Our old Morgan mare would do it just by shaking her lead rope, no clue how to train them to do it. Why do you want your horse to do it?

Parked,
Gaited horses are trained to park when you halt. Here is our TWH, "Merry Boy's Hart" (d. 2008, RIP) parked out.

Have a friend hold your horse. Use a rope or whip and gently ask him to step backwards, one foot at a time, while keeping the front feet planted. Praise, praise, praise and use the word, "Park" To gaited horses it feels natural, so you won't be asking for anything that will hurt him.

We taught it by having horse plant back feet and moving front feet one at time, by bumping coronet band lightly with toe of boot. Do this slowly, moving from one side to other, at same time making sure the back feet stay in place.

This is one reason I always taught a "be still" command too.

At same time? You need to be using lead shank to raise head so horse is stretched out in neck and looking "in the spotlight".

Give command to Park Out, split second after you raise head with shank, so when you cue horse with head being raised, those feet park out like supposed to.

And when you are up? You can set back feet and then "toe" the elbow to get horse to move one front foot at time forwards.

Originally, this was taught to get horse lower for mounting from ground, apparently?

I would think it would be easier to plant their back feet and move the front feet forward.

I was JUST showing pictures of this kind of stance to my roommate (....Mostly because I think it looks absolutely RIDICULOUS and unnatural.... No offense to those who think otherwise). Funny coincidence!

To teach it, yes, you tap the back legs one at a time, as has been told. Lots of praise. Eventually you can work in a command with it, and they'll start associating the command with the parking out. Work your way up to having him park out when he stops.

Don't expect too much too soon. It takes developing muscles in a new way to hold that stance. Even for horses that have the conformation to do it well.

Have fun and send pics when you get yours going on this.
