backing with intention and steady pressure, finale

Horse Image

At first Felix was a little reluctant to back more than 3 steps, but with consistency he successfully backed with just my intention. Steady pressure was much easier for him to pick up, he is definitely more familiar with this method of backing, he picked it up immediately. Felix has successfully completed all of these challenges and has become very familiar with yielding, leading, and backing.
