Teaching horse to bow
 
This week I have been working on Armas's bow. Today was the first time I tried it out side I have attempted it in his stall a couple of times. Its slowly getting better.
It is a learning curve for the both of us. Is his head coming to far back ?

First of all, you're horse is great! :D
Second, the head is way to far back, if he loses his balance an falls he can break his neck like this! So try to keep his head more in front of him except under his body.
Third thing, as you can see his stretched leg isn't stretched but curved :P wich needs to be straight. He hasn't got enough space to move his weight to the back. A good way to fix this is to learn you horse to stretch (I don't know if this is the correct word in englisch, in dutch we call it spagaat). It's like in this picture: http://94.100.120.149/1360900001-136...43_5_a_Vd.jpeg
The horse on the picture is stretched veryyy much. Your horse doesn't have to go so far to let him bow, but just a bit to create some space for him.
Here a picture of a correct bow: http://i51.tinypic.com/2qd3889.jpg
Fourth, subescribed :) Really beautiful horse!

Haha, maybe you should try some other treats he likes :D And don't do the same thing too long, then it becomes boring for him :) For variety do some other stuff inbetween.
Some horses just don't like a trick or have not much concentration :-P
