For serious?

I do like the hind hind though, although it'd be better with more tuck :)

That makes no sense to me. Horses have a blind spot directly in front of them. It doesn't seem to me that the horse should even be able to see the carrot. And if you look, she's adding in a good bit of spur work. Not really impressive... at least if she's trying be all "natural"

Carrot stick, heh heh..... That was funny.


This wasn't meant to be serious, I am sure it was meant tongue-in-cheek.... Horsepeople have some strange senses of humor, ya know....

Nah. I have tried to teach Dana to rear on command using that same method she looked at me, looked at carrot then knocked me off the barrel and ate the carrot. She has obviously taught him to do it properly and as said above is pulling our legs. Gotta love the horse drooling though!!!
