I think I should say this as I remember now..
He will willingly go for a walk out on a ride, leading him, just not riding.

And he doesnt usually rear in the arena, he has a few times, but that's only when he's gotten very over excited when the boss and I jumped him quite high! ;) he's never reared when I've lead him out on the trail and he never reared properly in the arena, a little jump up, not even a few inches off the ground type of rear, and that's also only been recently

I really like the look of monty roberts, kelly marks is monty roberts right? I have two of her books that mum got for me a while ago.

And is this a good one?

Parelli is VERY useful. I've been doing it for years and it's by far the best program out there, IMO. I did some Monty Roberts and John Lyons before I found Parelli and it just wasn't ever complete enough for me. I always felt like there was something missing. I don't feel that way with Parelli :) And yes, Parelli does use orange sticks but it's just a training tool.

Ok if he is fine with you leading him then start with step two.... Lunge and ride the crap out of him in the arena first then cool him out on the trail. When he get shifty get on and lunge the crap out of him and then get back on him. It will probably take several times for him to get the hint.

Or plan B.. smack him between the ears with a crop every time he rears. BUT I will warn you.. sometimes it will make it worse before it gets better if it gets better at all.

LOL Or like my hubby says (old cowboy tricks mind you) get you a water balloon and fill it with warm water and when he rears pop it on his head. He says it makes them think they are bleeding and they've hurt themselves and won't do it again. I guess he speaks horse...???... hahahaha

LOL! I was told crack an egg on their head!

Yeah I will do the lunge and ride thing you said to do starlinestables!

So parelli the best?

Definately definitely take off the draw reins. They are not an aid you want to use. They actually don't encourage correct carriage of the body. I would try a french link loose ring, or something similar. A lot of horses rear because they don't like the pressure of the chain under their chin, stud chains run under the jaw have the same effect. And I'd encourage you to take him for little walks with you on the ground, away from other horses to get him to listen to you better, and so you have a bit better control. If you need to, put a stud chain on him, if he gets really naughty, but wrap it around the noseband.

IMO Parelli is best, but everyone has their own opinions :)

As far as cracking anything over his head when he rears, that's just a bunch of BS IMO. Why on earth would you want to make your horse think he's bleeding when there is a MUCH better way to fix the problem?? Doesn't make sense to me at all.

I agree with you Spirithorse, but I know several people who have used it and it has worked. IMO its better to try and rule out everything that's could be causing a problem first. Before progressing/regressing to those kind of tricks. The groundwork, Koomy's suggestion, as well as yours to keep him busy worked for me and I think will work for most horses (not to offend anyone because there are serial rearers out there).

I think its a question of putting the time in to get the result you want, not just looking for a quick fix (again, I've heard it works with SOME horses, but I know the people who did it tried A LOT of other things first).

LOL I was joking/being sarcastic - I haven't nor do I ever see myself doing this. I was more or less making fun of my hubby and his old cowboy tricks! Hahaha
