Rabia Bakri has been training horses for over 20 years at his facility in Germany. He has been showing in Reining, Trail, Ranch Riding, Western Pleasure and young horses classes since his Youth days.
He starts young horses and offers to show experienced horses in any event except cattle classes. He also gives lessons for anyone with their own horse as well as for people who don’t have a horse of their own. He has some horses he uses for lessons as well.

Rabia focuses on the back-up in his exercise, especially on curved lines. He says that this is useful for any kind of horse showing in any kind of event. „It is important that my horse reacts quickly to my cues when asking for a back-up. Make sure your upper body is straight!“ He says that you shouldn’t use the reins too much, only to an extent needed to make the horse back. You can use the reins a little more if you back-up on curved lines. „Make sure to control the shoulder and your circle shouldn’t be too small, otherwise it’s too hard for the horse. Release your reins if the horse is doing well.“ Rabia stresses that you have to control the should with your outer rein. „You can do an eight backwards if your horse is really experienced.”

An Tag II unseres Adventskalenders geht es um das Thema Rückwärtsrichten, diesmal präsentiert von Rabia Bakri.
