Smile Standing square?

Hi everyone,

I was wondering how you would teach your horse to stand square in led classes and ridden.

I have tried backing her up but her back legs are still not aligned most of the time, she is quiet good with her front legs though.

Any advice/tips would be very appreciated :)

I would advise halting her, then consistently backing her and moving her forward a few steps until she gets it right, or close to it. Then make a really big deal of it. Praise her and pat her. Eventually, she'll get it. (The back legs are harder for me, too!)
Good luck!
