Have somneone on the ground help him to do rein back while you are on him giving the aids. Repeating this should help him to understand what is wanted. Eventually they will just stand there and the horse will follow your aid, leading to the ground person be unneccessary. Easy and confusion free

Contrary to observation, the rein back is actually a forward motion movement.

You ask for impulsion from behind then block in front to go back, kind of like bouncing a ball off of a wall.

I teach my horses the rein back by facing them to a wall or fence, this gets them thinking that they can not go forward but have to go some where. Squeeze using your legs and ask for motion, but as they start to move forward block them with your reins (do not pull back) I also tend to move my seat bones more forward and lean back slightly. As soon as you get a step backwards, relax and reward, then go again. They usually pick it up very quickly, then you just have to worry about straightness.
