using precision and positive reinforcement to teach horses and people

Chapter 10: Backing

This page lists additional resources for the book “Teaching Horses with Positive Reinforcement.” I will be adding to this page as I have time. 

Additional resources:


Asking a horse to step back using rope/body language/verbal cues. One summer I played with backing a lot with Red. This video shows us practicing backing off rope/body language cues and off a verbal cue.

Backing off a verbal cue. I also had fun teaching Red to back to the mat while I was sitting in a chair. He is using context cues but he waits for the verbal before he goes.
