Im currently trainig mytwo year old paint filly and have her backing at a slow pace which she doees with ease however im now curious as to how I will next faze that into a quicker back up any views would be appreciated!
I ask her to back by picking up the reins giving a soft squeeze and opening my hips so she is free to move backwards which works well I also release the pressure from the reins as soon as she starts to back and I ask her to stop backing by dropping my hands down.
If this sounds correct/incorrect to you please let me know this is the first horse I have trained for western having previously ridden ad trained for the past twenty years in english.
I want to make sure I am placing the correct aids for the western style to her the first time!!
Thank you in advance, B
