Yes as the others stated roll backs are simply a 180 degree turn, they basically turn or pivet on there hindquarters and usually there front legs dnt touch the ground until they take off... this is more western/stockwork kind of riding though.
Although using the hindquarters in such disiplines such as dressage, JDI explained it very well. I also use artifical aids to help enchance the command, I find dressage whips useful.
All the power is stored in the hind end, so finding out how to use it corretly is heaps of help when you do such displines that requires back end power, such as polocross, dressage, showjumping, X country, gymkana's, racing etc.
