Hi Stacy, I watched your video on how to teach your horse to bow and I finally got my horse Espresso to bow. Although now that she know’s how to bow every time the farrier comes to do her feet she bows. What is your suggestion? thanks Haley
Lol. That happens!
It should be less as you use the tap on the leg for the cue. Right now she is just concerned with the leg being held up. You may just hold her head and discourage her from going down for the next couple of setting.
If that doesn’t work, and you are using the rope and not your hand when you do hold her leg up, then you could also discourage her when she goes down by a gentle poke in the belly with your thumb when she tries to bow during feet cleaning.
