Controlling the horses hindend

I'm running out of exercises that help to work on controlling the horses hind end. What do you do? I want to keep it interesting and we do the same things over and over.

You mean on ground or in saddle? On ground I just move the butt in circle away from me that's it. Frankly I don't believe in repeating the same exercise over and over on ground - it's boring for me and obviously boring for my horse. So I just practice it once in while or when my horse misbehaves. In saddle I do lots of transitions and backing so she'd work from her hind. I also do turning her butt from my leg (with front legs frozen in place).

Turn on the forehand, turn on the haunches, lateral work all that kinda stuff they all make him work off his hind end.

Set up cones, barrels, etc. Back around, through. Side pass around through.

I love the video kevin posted! Rollbacks are really good to practice and get the hindend under control, and under your horse.

Thanks everyone, Kev I will try that tomorrow. I've backed around cones and have done alot of side passing but lately there is this one obstacle that I dread taking him through.

Which obstacle is that? And what does he do at that obstacle??

Moving the hind is generally not too hard - I tend to focus on moving shoulders.
