like another poster said a video of you riding would be interesting to see. Try to get one up if you can. I lost a 2 year old filly to this problem. She would rear because she like it. It was fun to her. When she did if we had a crop we would follow john lyons.... give the horse 3 seconds of hell. Make the horse think you gona kill it then after 3 seconds carry on like nothing happend. And this did work she did not rear as much then one day tied up she reared and the rope snaped and she fractured her skull and we had to put her down. After that I told myself if I ever get a rearer I am spending the money for a pro to train it. My ex boyfriend was a bull rider and I DO NOT SUGGEST ANYONE DO THIS!!! But he liked a ride and his horse would rear up so he took a water ballon and when the horse reared up he poped the ballon over the horses head. It was a lil funny the horse had that o sh#* look on its face and came down rite away and to this day has never poped them front feet off the ground

I also heard you can use an egg instead of a water balloon. But water is a lot less messy than and egg.

yea I guess its the same concept. The horse rears up and this strange thing busts all over its head. The horse wont rear again thinking he is gona "hit" this object that will pop all over his head

hello I'v had a horse that rears and she fell on me that hurts alot.. Have you tried changing her bit out? The horse that I had I sold her because she was starting to rear but the person that bought her said that he changed the bit from a snaffle to a hackamore and she did wonderful. If you use the water balloon and burst it on their head it makes them think they are bleeding and they'll stop it or you can use a waffle bat and get her on top on the head when she starts to rear but you have to be careful and have right timing because when you get her on top of the head with the waffle bat. I just want to clarify for those of you that are starting to write a post to say I'm cruel by me saying waffle bat i'm meaning those big plastic bats that kids play with NOT a steel or fiberglass bat.. but if you use the water ballon or if you hit her on top of the head it takes time you have to continue with it one time will not get it but before you go and start trying to hit her on top of the head with anything make sure you look over everything including the tack esp the saddle and bit. I think I would try to resolve this myself before going to the trainer because you know your horse better than the trainer and you can work with her alot better just be very careful because as some have mentioned and as I'm sure your well aware rearing is one of the most dangerous things a horse can do to you and itself
