This question was sent into me by Marie from Australia. It shows the way that I would use a rope to hold a horses leg up while teaching a horse to bow. In the DVD ‘Teaching Your Horse To Bow‘ which is an hour long and covers the process in detail I use the saddle to demonstrated. Also in that video I use four different horses to show how to begin with one that has never done it and progress.
The interesting part about this video to me is the theory that I talk about after he bows quickly the first time and I am waiting for him to figure it out the second time. Did you see how long I was willing to wait? I was confident that standing on three legs would eventually motivate him. Do you understand how allowing him that time to think will make the training stronger?
