    Then there's either some underlying physical issue there or a curious mental block. It's not every day that horses walk backwards in the pasture, but I'd guess physical. Just curious, but how do you get him out of a trailer?

    If it is something physical blocking him from being able to engage those muscles then it's unlikely he will be able to make much process in developing them. I'd get a vet out to make sure nothing is hurting, then teach him to back. And the other exercises too :)

    No it isn't funny it is concerning!

    Backing up, and doing it properly, getting the horse to drop his head and round his back as he reverses is a great way of improving muscles on the back end.

    His refusal to back, and lack of muscles concerns me that there is a physical issue here. I would get him checked out, and if he vets out 100% then you have a training issue to address. Being fussy about when to back is not an option, his only response should be "yes mam, how quick and how far"
