    I'm teaching Sonny how to bow and so on...but I'll never teach him to rear in case I mess up somewhere. It's just safer
    I always see my mare rearing up in the pasture or if I'm free lunging her in the arena she'll stop and rear at the far end. Never next to me or other people. I think it would easy to teach her since she does it so much on her own, but she lives at a boarding barn and someone else might give her the command to rear without knowing it and be very surprised. Or could get hurt.
    I think for a trick like that you should at least have your own barn or whoever is handling him/her should know what commands to avoid.

    Yes. Or have such cues people can't use them as mistake.. my friend has the cue to raise her arms above her head and say ''up!''.. her horse never rears otherwise. You'd be stupid if you did that and got surprised if the horse reared :P

    I went to look at a horse that was for sale and the lady that owned her had taught her to touch her belly when someone would move the end of her tail towards her head. I'm going to start doing that with my horses cause not only is it cool to watch but it teaches the horse to give its head to the side (which my horses have a problem with :)) plus it limbers up the neck just before a ride.
