    Wild, he moves his front end with just the smallest amount of leg pressure. I'm working on controlling just is back end and hips.

    Pechos, it's two posts. On one post the rope is tied and the other it's loose so I can pick it up. I pull up next to it and I push him over so I can get close. He gets his front end so close that it touches the rope but the back not so much. He's not afraid of the rope or the posts. I start to drive his backend way before I get close and it helps, but not alot. I tried being soft and nice about asking, he didn't. So I moved into being more aggressive and it didn't help. This probably sounds confusing. Haha

    I mean I can't expect him to be perfect, we've only been working him for about two-three months? I just would like to know other things I can do to try and work on controlling his back end. Because this rope thing gets very boring after awhile. Mentally and physically.

    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!!!

    Thank-you, I'll work more on our rollbacks.
