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 u do such displines that requires back end power, such as polocross, dressage, showjumping, X country, gymkana's, racing etc.
