For those who said that trick training is bad/negative, I taught my horse to paw and so many people on here put me down but my horse after weeks of properly working up to it my horse can do a beautiful Spanish walk and she's never hurt me doing it, or does it without my command/instruction. If you want to do trick training you have to be experienced enough and teach it properly its what all the experienced people warn kids and people, but than once again instead of the person training getting the blame trick training gets the blame.
Training something properly takes time to do properly, people forget to only train the horse for a short time at first or what the horse can handle.
And you have to be careful training with food, food is used only for when the horse is just learning to get a horse to properly do a trick or movement in the end food shouldnt be used the horse should just understand and be happy with a pat or release.
Trick training can be dangerous, if you can't do it properly .
