Highlights of teaching a horse how to bow. This horse's owner needed the horse to bow for mounting in case she needed to get off on trail and there was not an object around to use as a mounting block. It took approximately five days working an hour a day to get to the point where he would bow for mounting with a tap on the shoulder. This video shows each step to get the bow only. There were additional steps covered to get him to respond to the tap on the shoulder and to stay down until the rider was up.
