The little boys are very motivated to pull the reins and stop in front of one of my vehicle pictures. (I have an airplane, motorcycle, train, fire truck, back hoe, pick up truck, train and airplane). Most kids are not eager to pull the reins and stop, but stopping to see one of the pictures is a big motivator and then I can working on having them say go. My higher functioning kids can follow directions such as "do around the world and stop in front of the train picture".
