How do you ask your horse to back? Can you do it from a walk and a trot...



*"How do you ask your horse to back?  Can you do the same training to fix the back of an older trained horse as you do with a greener horse?  Why not?"*

Another blast from the past! In this session you will see how we are using backing to connect Susan and Darrien (her than new horse) To do this, she focused on keeping his shoulders and poll up as he backed. Darrien is still rooting a little with the reins at times (he came to us with this issue) but is much better than he was a few months ago. 

What did you learn from watching Susan and Darrien that you can use while backing your horse?
