I've found that halting and immediately asking for several backing steps helped my horse learn to transfer weight from front to back more quickly. It also had the side benefit of her squaring her halts up more as she prepared to have to back. I'm not sure if that was just my horse, or what though.

What you are doing is moving forward and then asking them to sit back and make a sharp turn. We do it at all gaits. It also helps to opein up thier sholders.

The horse. Here is nobility without conceit, friendship without envy, beauty without vanity. A willing servant, yet never a slave.
