horse tricks
 
What are some tricks you have taught your horses. I taught the foals by our place to give me a hug and kiss on command. Im working on getting them to bow. That's harder!

What are your ideas as far as teaching horses things like lying down, shaking hooves and rearing? I have heard some people say it can be dangerous to teach them those kind of things but others say it is the way it is done.

I don't suggest teaching pawing type tricks. I have seen many people get kicked because a horse was taught to "count" or "shake" The horse starts begging, gets impatient and accidently hits the owner.
