I would just do as others and myself have advised. Also, do rollbacks at every gait. Let's say you walk around the arena and pick a spot to stop, once you stop immediately back up 3-5 steps, and perform your rollback, and without hesitation, start to walk again. (when doing this, from the rollback, you will begin walking in the opposite direction before you did the rollback) I hope you understand this lol. Than, move to the trot. Once again, not a second after you have completed the rollback and are facing in the opposite direction, pick that trot right back up ( no hesitation what so ever!). Than move onto the canter. This really get's their hindend under themselves and they will eventually see how easy it is to move from the hindend versus the frontend. Good Luck!!!
