My dad has asked me if Sky rears cause he saw it in a movie and it looked "so cool"
Yeah.. no. Not cool at all. People are too easily impressed with really stupid dangerous things I've noticed :/
I completely agree. Too many people own horses who probably shouldn't and do stupid things with them, putting themselves and their horses in danger. I just don't think any of those horses in the video were taught to rear, which was what the post was about. I don't know, maybe I am just not one of those who goes for the shock video kind of lesson. I guess if one person watches it and it talks them out of teaching their horse to do something irresponsible that they are not qualified to train their horse to do, then it's good. I guess my point is just not about the rearing or not rearing, but more about people training their horses to do anything
they are not qualified to train their horses to do whether it's rearing, jumping, sliding stops, or even backing.
