Back 50? Circle – Right (with flexion to the inside): Challenge complete!

Mark this challenge complete when you are able to back a complete 50' circle to the right, with the horse flexed to the inside of the circle.

Ideally the horse remains soft and fluid through this motion. The horse is making a combined motion of backing and turning versus backing then turning.
