Rein-back is an exercise that is often problematic for riders, yet it’s a very useful one to teach your horse, especially if you encounter gates to open whilst hacking out!
Before attempting to teach your horse to rein-back, it’s important that you understand what you are aiming to achieve, especially if you intend to ride the exercise in a dressage test; it’s a tricky exercise that can be a real mark-loser when not ridden well.
So, in this podcast episode, we’re going to cover the benefits of rein-back, the qualities of a correct rein-back, how to teach the rein-back, and how to ride and aid the rein-back.
