    I taught my boy how to rear!! Obviously, we still have some work to do, but I think he's doing amazing so far! These pics are from today

    Very cool! In all those pictures he looks like he is very balanced too, and not out of control like a lot of the "rearing horses" are. Can't wait to see how it looks when it's perfected! Very impressive!

    I think its very risky and unsafe to be teaching your horse to rear
    Especially when you are on the horse
    The horse could miss step or spook or fall over
    This not safe for any rider
    And what you see in the movies are stunts done by the pros

    Just my opinion

    I agree with Country Woman. Rearing IMHO is one of the single most dangerous things a horse can do undersaddle. Why would I encourage it - it's like purposefully teaching my horse to buck.

    Eek. My stomach just dropped. Sorry mate... but teaching a horse to rear isn't a cool trick like teaching them to smile. If you knew people who'd been killed or wheelchair bound due to a horse rearing, stumbling and flipping on top of them... you may re-evaluate the sanity of your decision to teach this 'cool trick'.

    Don't mean to scare you - but I just thought of the fact that literally just yesterday, a girl that I've rode with had her lower back CRUSHED because her horse reared up and over and landed on her. She won't walk again for at least a year let alone ride. She's lucky not to be paralyzed.

    Scariest thing - her horse was taught to rear and was very good and controlled. But when he went up, he lost his footing I guess because of the new spring grass and just tumbled over onto her. It's not as if he blew up.

    Horse are dangerous, I don't understand the idea of purposefully making them even more dangerous.
