TB, when asking the horse to do any groundwork, remind yourself that you are the teacher. Pretend you are attempting to teach a person who doesn't understand English. Sometimes you would have to explain, using your hands to achieve the simplest thing to get them to understand. This foreigner is your horse. Teach him in small increments. To back a horse up, that hasn't a clue, I'll apply pressure to the noseband and tap the shoulder of the most forward hoof as that is the one that will take the step, then immediately remove the pressure on the halter and stop tapping. Then repeat. He may only barely lift a hoof and you must be ok with that. Horses need three or four times to grasp the concept. As soon as he does a complete step release and rub his forehead, maybe even offer a small treat.

i was very impressed with him, he backed up straight away

the hoofs i usually run my hand down from the top down to the hoof, he let the front ones up easy his back ones were the hard ones

which would be caused by me not asking correctly

i have to remember each time to ask the same way each time

the farriar ask's different for the hoof, he squeezes the the bit inbetween the hoof and the hock, where as i run my hand down..he gives straight away for the farriar, so maybe i should just do how the farriar does it to not confuse him?
