Walk out into an arena or an open space with your horse in a halter and lead rope.
Give your horse a short warm-up session.
Once you’re done, walk into the center of the area you are working in.
Loosen your horse’s neck muscles by stretching its neck to the left, right and down.
Before you start, gather several small-sized rewards like broken-up carrots or treats.
Stand on one side of the horse and put the leadrope between the front legs.(Be careful with this, if your horse spooks, this could be a dangerous situation.)
Put slight pressure on the leadrope with one hand to get the horse to follow your other hand with the treat in it down towards the ground.
Once your horse lowers it’s head a little ways, reward him/her and release the pressure.
Repeat steps 7 and 8 and get your horse’s head a little lower than before.
Continue steps 7-9 until you get your horse’s head down so far that it has to bend a knee to retrieve the reward that’s between its front legs. Once you have reached this point, reward him/her lavishly.
Give your horse a short break, then continue with steps 7-10 to get to where you left off before, or even lower.
Practice, practice, practice!
