    Um yeah, I would not have ridden that horse after the first incident. You are lucky that neither one of you got hurt this time around. Get this behavior corrected ASAP before you even think about riding this horse again.

    Oh and I'm not aware of the other thread, sorry if I am repeating something that has already been said. Linky though.

    All the more reason not to start multiple threads on the same thing....it's bad forum etiquette

    Ok girls, cut her some slack. Maybe she didnt do what you all would have done but noones perfect and we all screw up. This is honest reason why so many people leave this forum, because everyone gangs up on just one person and they feel harassed and its not a nice feeling, you guys have done it to me before. I think we all need to be friendly and give our opinion in the most politest way possible or keep it to yourself.We are all trying to achieve the same thing which is staying safe while riding horses and having some fun enjoying the journey.

    Honestly, most of us would feel like crap if we did nothing but tell her "Pretty horse, great shots!" and "Great job for staying on!" and something were to happen. I don't recall anyone that was rude on either thread, just people that are genuinely concerned for this girl's LIFE. Like it or not, this is a public forum and people are going to voice their opinions loud and clear when we see something this dangerous. Her mother was standing there filming? That's incomprehensible to me. Does she not understand just how dangerous rearing is?

    I hate to come into the picture section and post anything negative as we are not supposed to offer critique in this section, however... In this case, I think that it is ok to assume that you are not grasping the severity of this situation. The fact that you posted pictures and videos and described your horse as being "naughty" to me shows that you don't realize just how dangerous this situation is.

    It doesn't really matter how sturdy or athletic your horse is, it will only take one slip of the hoof or a shift of your body weight for things to go drastically wrong. Please keep that in mind when working this horse. In the pictures I don't see any counter measures, I don't see any attempts to stop the action. I'm going to head over to the video section now but I can't stop myself from asking you to figure out a way to stop this right now.

    Rearing is about the most dangerous thing a horse can do and should NEVER be taken lightly.

    Working in veterinary medicine, one of the biggest things that bothers me is when an owner states that their animal is "naughty" or laughs it off when they bite, scratch, growl, generally act like a jackass, etc. The same is true for horses. Bad behavior in any animal companion is not funny, not cute, and not to be taken lightly. ESPECIALLY when the animal weighs half a ton and can crush you. That horse DOES NOT respect you, and that is sad. I find it to be a wonder that you are living to post these worrisome photos.

    Besides that, I guess all I can say is... nice seat you have there.

    You didn't ask for any advice, but I will give you some anyways - take it or leave it.

    My 4 year old tried to rear on me... a little baby barely off the ground rear. I hopped off, got a lunge line, hooked it to her snaffle and got back on and continued my ride. She tried again, but this time went up. I slid off, smacked the crap out of her ass with the end of the lunge and lunged her as fast as I could make her move for about 10 minutes. They can't rear if they are going forward. She was a foamy, sweaty mess and breathing hard. I got back on and continued my ride. She minded her manners, and has never attempted it again.

    Unfortunately, your mare has this maneuver firmly embedded in her bag of tricks, and the faster you deal with it the better. The next time she tries this, and the next, and the next, I would be prepared with a lunge and ready to slide off and make her little butt move hard and fast. The sooner she realizes that rearing will be met with an incredible amount of work, the quicker she'll stop this.

    Keep safe.
