Let me put it simply. A horse is not a motorbike and training is not a guarantee. So yes you need to be an experienced rider.

All horses deserve, at least once in their lives, to be loved by a little girl.

In short you have to a very good (and very experienced) rider to be able to manage rearing. Sorry, but it just doesn't sound like a case.

BTW, bucking is not nearly as dangerous as rearing IMHO.
ok thanks that was what I was wondering.

Actually I did answer it. YES, you have to be an experienced rider. And YES, horse can still flip over because you won't know how to deal with rear properly.

Edit: oops... Sorry... Posted and then saw your answer.

And just to add... Neither of us try to be mean to you. I myself saw what the rearing horse did to the VERY experienced rider: he was sent to ER right from the trail. I'd hate to know it happened to someone else.

YES, even a properly trained horse can rear too high, lose its balance. Do you think a properly trained runner cant tear an acl? Do you think a propely trauined k9 wont attack someone?

Depends on the animal. my rabbit is the master of rearing hahaha if she was bigger I would feel safe but horses don't have feet the length of their body.

If my horse would jump as high as my cat does I'd take all gold at Olympics! LOL!

Good luck finding the rider/horse you need!
