having had a friend be paralyzed from the waist down after a horse reared and went over on her (mares back legs slipped) I hate rearers and people who teach horses to rear
Reeco Reared once and it was terrifying for 30 seconds I thought he was going to come over on me, when he did come over he thankfully missed me but it was a close thing.
Stan reared 3 times in 10 years (each time his saddle was hurting) the first time he went up he very nearly went over and had he not been so incredibly balanced in himself and had such a powerful back end then I think he would have come over. The other 2 times were small rears that I wolloped his arse for and he came down (probably didnt come anymore then 8 to 10 inches off the floor)
RIDE your horse FORWARDS and keep him STRAIGHT
