How do I equip/use the shield?

Okay, i'm in Faron Woods and there are these bush creatures shooting rocks at me and i need to have the shield equipped to deflect the rocks back at them so I can kill them. I received the shield from the instructor free and it hasn't broken yet. I heard that you use the nunchuck to raise the shield and I thought that your shield automatically got equipped, but apparently that wasn't the case as when i raised the nunchuck, the shield didn't get raised too.

What do I do? How do i do this? i wasn't paying attention in the beginning of the game when they told me how to use and equip the shield.

Push *and hold* the minus button. Point at the shield. Release the minus button.

Press and hold the - button and point to your shield (if you bought one) and let go of the - to select it. To remove/equip it after that, just tap the - button after you set it to that button.

Hold the minus button then point at the shield in the selection.
