That is very good news! I hope it is only a big bruise and nothing broken! ***Sending healing vibes***

I believe the post was titled "would you take A horse that killed its rider." I read the original post not all 14 pages of details. I was sort of talking in general not this particular horse (because of the title - got me all philosophical :p)

Why would I even consider a rearing horse? Well it would depend on the horse... My horse used to have a rearing rep before I bought him. But he was so willing and great I bought him. In over a year with me he reared once, at a horse that was charging us on a trail ride. I stayed on him even though I was bareback (i do NOT know how) and he probably ended up actually protecting me.

Not that that is usually the case with rearers that just influences my opinion.

To further clarify- I am NOT suggesting the OP made a bad choice AT ALL. I was merely replying in conjecture to the question posed by the title. And I would never want to suggest someone partake in unnecessary danger! I regret that I came across that way :\
Hope everything works out.

(i caught the saddle horn with it) I was younger and dumber then.lol notice im not saying i'm old and smart. However I do believe I am smarter than I was,but am always learning still. I couldnt wear short in public for a month or better

If I had enough time to re-train the horse or if it no longer bucked then yes I would consider but if I didnt have the time then it would certainly be a no

Serious bucking and serious rearing are two very very different issues. I'd take on a bucker I wouldnt touch a rearer with a very very long barge pole as it is too dangerous.
