Many of you many know.. obviously my Gelding sunny.:) I had him on barrels.. but this winter. I am just going back to the basics.. walk trot whoahh.. and back up.. and getting him collected.. I will probably start a thread for him as well.. and maybe Poncho too:P
Okay her is my question.. I have been working on getting sunny to back up with leg pressure.. I will first put a little pressure on he reins.. then puts pressure on with my heals and say back up... then let go of the pressure with the reins..
Now.. I got it where I just put pressure on with my heals and none with the reins:) I will shoot a video of what I mean as well:)
But is that^^ a bad way to teach a horse to back up? Or is it a good way because he is working off my leg?
another question.. he wont back up straight..:/ how can I teach him to? By keeping him up against a fence or something?
