He does alright asking with direct pressure, bending at the poll and stepping back nicely. In the saddle I use seat first but still have to reinforce with reins a bit since that's how he was previously trained (ranch horse) only to enforce the seat que.

I have stopped asking for faster and been rewarding effort and responsiveness instead. I haven't noticed any issues and had a lameness test on him before I bought him in April, but I'm being careful just in case for both of our sakes.

Had him out yesterday for a bit, he was very willing and responsive, I didn't focus on backing but asked for it a few times and he was responding to Just a small amount of pressure, and was backing much nicer off my seat when on him. I think ill stop asking foe speed and work on responsiveness to light cues and slowely work up the number of steps.

This is nonsense. Parelli is your first problem IMO.

I don't follow Parelli, I was just using his terms to describe how he reacts and handles situations.
