Unhappy Help ! Rearing Horse.

Hey !
I have a 17.2hh German Sports Horse, he is great on the flat.
He is 7 years old, and not that long ago loved jumping, did 1.40 courses. in the last year he has decided that any jumps where he is jumping away from the gate he will stop, do a vertical rear and spin on one leg.
anyone got any ideas how i can solve this problem ???

I'd practice free jumping him for a while. I would also maybe get him checked by a chiropractor or something. He might have something out of place, which is making him refuse these jumps.

Does he only rear when you jump?
How often do you jump compared to flat work?

To me it sounds like he has gone a bit sour. Honestly, I would give him a break from jumping, do some trails, etc. Some nice relaxing work! Once he is chilled out, I would start him from the beggining again, smaller jumps/less techincal courses, and eventually bring him back up to where he was.

I agree with wild_spot, it sounds like he is sour to jumping.

I would lunge him over jumps, and if he refuses the same way, i would give him a break and do something fun like a trail =]
