Hopefully I can get her to do the spanish walk ! As a couple of times when asking her to paw she walked forward and took a big step with her leg it was cute so I just need to get the synchronised with the other front leg moving forward.

Honestly, I would not worry. When I was in high school, I taught my horse to count, say yes, and no, he would kick on command, and bow, plus park out so I could jump on bareback. Never had any backlash.

When he was sold 2000 miles away, I got a letter from the new owner telling me what a wonderful horse he was, and they tought he might do tricks, and could I please tell them his cues.

I love my horses as much as anyone, but I prefer they not paw and kick.
To each his own.

You just wanted to brag about how clever you are. Well, it's not clever to encourage a vice in a horse who didn't previously have it. It's downright unintelligent.
I know this is a late reply, I have been very busy with my life and horse and contemplating wether the horse forum is a constructive and positive place for me to belong to, or if I should join a different forum solely to do with natural horsemanship and start a new fresh as id only like to do natural horsemanship with my horse and I would accept any constructive and non bullying criticism from people I can look up to by the way they train. And see wether they have evidence to prove their opinions.

I am going to say that I have a friend who I ride with and her family have been selling and breeding horses that are well known all around the area in eventing and competitions for their amazing training abilities and how they were broken in the best way and are off course posses great conformation.

My friend was given her sisters horse a 1* competing horse with absolute amazing conformation because he was getting older. Her sister is a riding instructor an amazing one who has so many clients, my friend taught her horse the 1 star horse to paw he doesn't do it as a bad habit and when told to paw does not need food for it or paw to demand food.

I taught jazzy to paw with out food at first, and she never has pawed when I have not queued her to paw. I've decided I should just leave the horse forum now or just respond to inboxes from the lovely kind and not so narrow minded people such as how your post sounds. I have knowledgable and experienced horse people around me in real life and im to busy with school with horse to be going idle on the horse forum copping the negative rubbish and picking on because so many of you people can not see from others point of views or only accept certain methods of doing things with horses.

Your comment not only was it narrow minded, but you stereotyped me and experienced horse people as I know of many experienced horse trainers and knowledgable well respected people that would teach their horse to paw.

I can supply you with evidence proving that experienced people probably heaps more experienced than the general population on the horse forum, which have taught their horse to paw and do not allow it to turn into a habit or teach it in a way which causes the horse to paw and demand for food.

By the way my instructor trained the horse to compete up to 1 * but you experienced and narrow minded horse people only accepting certain safe* ways to train are experienced. I must say I have only been kicked once and that was because I was applying cream to a wound on a horse which reacted from pain why have I not been injured around horses ? I have been around many different peoples horses ridden horses for people and ridden riding school horses that can get grumpy im not sure it must be because I am surrounded by good horse people who train n their horses better than the common only show horses.

Many people have taught horses tricks without negative consequences,counting,bowing,lying down etc. Very Often those people have quite the bond & relationship with their animal from few I've seen.
I wouldn't be so quick to jump all over & be rude to the OP
