    Are these things not good? Alfie often get whacked in the face with the lead rope clip
    (I think that's what's helped )
    If I had nothing but I still had my horse and my Teddy, I'd still have everything I ever needed.

    Backing him up fpr his feed is definitely a good start I get everything I feed to do that (mine and other people's!). Be confident in your body language if you can- energy is important for them to understand what you want .
    Also, how do you move him away? If you use your fingertips instead of your whole hand, the pressure is easier to increase/decrease so you could get a better result .

    Thanks, he's always made to move back for food or when I go in his stable and does quite willingly most of the time! And I am very confident around him, it's keeping my patirence that's the problem sometimes!
    I hadn't thought about the hand/finger tips-i'll give finger tips a go
