    I have no idea why someone would call this abuse. The horse went down very
    willingly and smooth! Better than others I’ve seen on youtube. You’ve done
    a lot of work with this horse, very nice! :) And you are SO gorgeous! Ever
    thought about becoming a model? (Not trying to seem creepy or anything, I’m
    just not afraid to say when I think someone looks beautiful)

    Everyone who thinks this is horse abuse needs to calm down. As you can tell
    the horse is very flexible, obviously shown when it is bowing. This shows
    that she stretches her/him and that if it was abuse, (which it isn’t) the
    horse would be very tight in the muscles. I can see how it might be looked
    at as abuse, but only because of how she pulled it’s neck, which still is
    very flexible, and it was willing to try and touch it’s belly like
    – – –
    Also, stop telling her what to wear, sure they are shorts, but guess what,
    She’s not telling YALL what to wear? It’s a free country, get over it

    very good, force your horse to fall down…you are such a terrible trainer
    if you cant do it without force :(

  4. GuineaPirate says:

    This is called MAKING your horse lay down…..Mine lays down without any
    external force. All you need is a slight touch to the chest and with your
    body language tell him to bow. This is just forcing him down….its silly
    to think its “teaching” him, he doesn’t have a choice. I wish people would
    quit using the old methods of training horses….

    very good trainer.I don’t think many people can do that with their
    horse.your very good.what you do. keep up the good work.

  7. Deanna Arbucci says:

    idiots, he’s licking his lips in the end, which means he understands what
    she is asking for. look at any natural trainer and you will see when a
    horse understands and is in harmony he will lick.

    i have been trying this for years now aprox. 1 1/2 now and i still can’t
    get his to do anything, he powers over me and rips the rope out of my hand
    so he can stand up, we have done basic horseman ship so he does trust me
    but he will not do this!! help, if i cant find his talent my parents are
    going to sell him to the doggers.!>!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HELP ME PLEASE!

  9. Tate Jane says:

    Why do you suggest we master the bow first? They naturally lay down so I
    thought it would be okay to do it without bowing first. I don’t intend to
    sound rude I just wanted to teach my horse to lay down this week. :)

    Great job ! Thank you. I prefer to use nothing. But your horse is willing,
    calm and having a go. I think you’ve done well ! :):) keep it up!

  11. Charlie Irvin says:

    I don’t know why others worry about what you wear. its what ever makes you
    feel comfortable. it don’t bother me. Just keep up the good work. Thanks
    for Sharing this.

  12. Matyson Livingood says:

    Kyleigh Delibero and Sophie. this is not abuse. if she was abusing her
    horse he would not even want to be around her and you would be able to tell
    if he didn’t want to do it. horses are flexible and he did go down
    willingly. besides, I am sure the only kind of horses you work with are

  13. MoonLight Mystique says:

    you must get a lot of sand up in those nasty booty shorts.. lol

  14. Adan Alcala says:

    How bout wearing some pants, crazylegs?

  15. Orriarna Bracken felsing says:

    i think this is a good way to lie some horses down, some horses will put up
    a fight, my horse would leap and buck because at the time he was very
    nervous, i lie a horse down to help trust if a horse is scared and yes this
    way can work but i warn, use this on an abused horse and it will probably
    rear, buck etc! just saying becuase you have to think of both safety! x

  28. Nikita Kurtz says:

    I think that this is really well done. Ignore the haters. However I found
    that this method for me didn’t work so well as I couldn’t get my horse to
    lie down. However I used another method and now he lies down. However I
    still use half of yours. I use someone else’s to now him and yours to lie
    him down. 

  29. Emma Jito says:

    Cool my horse now can do it to

  30. Tori Martin says:

  32. Logan Taylor says:

    Thanks that video really helped:)

  33. Minecraftluver24 says:

    Can you show us how to teach a stubborn horse to lay down. My horse and I
    have worked on it forver . 5 months maby. He won’t even bow. Plz help

  34. Brooke Polston says:

    If that’s the case you need to be super careful! see some people don’t like
    when people lay horses down they think its ‘cruel’ when really it’s
    actually building trust, horses are prey animals, getting one to lay down
    even if its not so willingly is a big deal.. so I’m gonna get a horse that
    has never bowed before and try making a video for ya’ll! ^ ^^:)

  35. SilkShadow5183 says:

    gave up. Gonna try again!(:

  36. Cayenne341 says:
