'Backing' is a pretty latest term that is pretty synonymous with breaking the horse. Both tight-fisted to get the horse used to wearing a saddle and to having a rider on him. He will not be fully trained, but will know basic cues such as way of walking, trot, canter, woah, and basic plow rein steering. The term came roughly when the dressage set decided that saying to 'break' a horse sounded too harsh because they didn't resembling the idea of breaking a horse nearly as much as gently and methodically training it. So, people started using the occupancy 'backing' as a kinder replacement for breaking.
Just channel someone has been on them. Doesn't even necessarily mean that they've be ridden.
Answers: Backing is one of the middle steps in saddle training a horse. During backing, the horse already knows how to wear a saddle and should be pretty used to it. One character will usually hold the horse while another will put weight in the stirrups. When the horse is okay near weight in the stirrups, the rider will then to a degree mount. The rider does not sit in the saddle normally, but will have counterbalance in one stirrup and basically lie across the saddle for some term of time. This allows the horse to feel weight on his back in need the scare of something tall on top of him. When the horse is okay beside this, then the rider will mount properly and the horse will be led by the handler. Even though the horse has a creature on his back, you might not call it riding at this point since the horse does not really know the cues yet. At some following point, the rider will then try to control the horse from his back. Depending on the tolerance level of the horse, they may necessitate one, several, or many sessions to make this step in their training.
When a horse have been backed, you could say that he know how to carry a person around, but is not really fully saddle broke yet.
