Hello :) I had a long break in reading forum, but I'm back now and this is an interesting topic. My mare is too tall and I cannot mount on her bareback without chair or piece of wood or something. She knew how to lay on signal and few month ago, when I couldn't find anything to use for mounting, I decided to lay her down. I was quite suprised because it wasn't hard to get on her this way :) For her safety she didn't have anything on her. No saddle, no halter.
For me it is a usefull ability. I don't use this technique often but my friend used to do this to get on his horse.
I taught her to lay without ropes also for her safety. Also I used situations when she want to roll. I gave her a signal to lay and after some time she connected those two things. The signal for her is when I take her leg and clap her on her shoulder. I don't think it is possible for her to lay when I don't want her to lay because it is a group of signal and she understand my intention.
For getting off I just jump, because she don't know how to lay when I'm on her :)

I love Heidi Herriott! This Saturday I'll have all day to work with him,no little kids running around,yelling,leaning on the round pen panels (he gets distracted easily if someone else is nearby) and asking to pet the blonde horsey Sooooo excited! I'm going to teach him to say yes and no,to bow,and maybe I'll find a few other cute tricks.
