If you look at my pictures you can actually see the action shot of him rearing. Not a pretty sight!

He will do the same thing if spooked on a trail - he will plant all 4 feet & if asked to move forward he will rear instead of going forward. He will rear & flip over without trying to stop himself from falling. He is quite strong & easily bucks & rears while playing in the fields. Not sure how to cure the rearing either. I have had horses for 30+ years, since I was a child & this is the first one like this.

Alrighty then, it sounds like more of a training/disrespect problem then horse is a little wired at the show. The valerian root will help relax in all situations but will not fix bad behavior and disrespect. If the horse is rearing and flipping on a regular basis, stop riding go back to ground work and find a trainer to help you.

He has found a way to get out of work rearing is his go to method to get you off his back and out of something he does not want to do. It is very dangerous and needs to be corrected by someone who knows how to fix this type of behavior. Please be safe and get a trainer to help you.

I'd suggest having a look at what Monty Roberts has to say about a rearing horse problem. He uses a different approach...

This horse has found a way to avoid work and it's pretty effective! So you have to treat the cause of the's not a nervous horse in new environments but a horse that won't do what he's told.

I won't go into the details of the Monty Roberts solution as I don't want to get any of it wrong...and I've only seen him demonstrate it once...
