Does your horse freeze when you ask him to back up? Perhaps he raises his head to evade the command and backs awkwardly with his head too high? Does your horse back crookedly or tense up in anticipation of a back or is he simply confused by what you are asking of him? If any of these issues sound familiar, Bernie created this topic just for you. Solving backing problems brings you one step closer to improving all your downward transitions, not to mention, your horse’s mouth.
Running Time: 16 minutes and 23 seconds
