The dangers of teaching your horse to rear.

I did not make this video. Some of you have seen me on the forum defending rearing. My reasons for defending some of it is because I truly believe a balanced, well taught rear is not dangerous. A crazy, disrespectful, frightened rear however is. I found this video and thought it could shed some light.

Yep, it's a ridiculously stupid thing to teach a horse.... but I don't get the gist of your post. You say you advocate teaching a horse to rear in a controlled manner, and then post a video telling people that teaching a horse to rear is stupid and dangerous???

I would agree that it is a bad thing to do. I would say the same for teaching a horse to lay down under saddle. I used to think I wanted to teach my horse to do that, but after much thought, I decided I don't ever want my horse to think it was ok to lay down under saddle at his convenience.

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)

No, the horse was a show horse that was spooked by some idiot kids firing a cap gun in its direction.

Rearing is THE most dangerous thing a horse can do and anyone who teaches a horse to do so is a fool (barring proffessional stunt men/women)

Okay, so sorry if I sound dumb or if I completely missed something, but I'm confused. You're talking about teaching horses to rear, saying that when it is controlled it can be okay, and then posting a video of horses rearing not on command.?
