Repeat how many times until he understands????

Hi guys,

i was wondering, i'm trying to make my horse understand not to move by correcting him every time and bring him back to place when he does move but after HALF of day of work, he still moves! HEHEHE

so what am i doing wrong? Is there a way easier for them to understand? or do i have to repeat this for the next year?

When you bring him back how are you doing it. You have to make it no fun to move on his own, when he walks off, back him back to where you left him. Some horses learn fast but the longer it takes to learn it the better he will be at it.

If he goes running over to the other side of the ring that just means he has that much more to back up, backing up is not fun for horses it is a lot of work to back up. If he's running off and you just walk him back it's no big deal and he will just walk off again, and you will play that game all day. When you tell him to back up don't kind of ask him make him do it like he means it. After all of this he will be good at backing on and off him.
