    A job for a professional trainer to deal with. Don't risk your life-things like this get owrse if theyre not smacked in the butt straight away.
    Due to this being an interesting topic, I have to say, that
    I would continue you lunge my horse and push him forwards, if he starts to rear, yank his head around and in. Rearing at you, throw your whip around or something, avoid stepping back away (unless your trying to save life/limb). Stepping back is allowing them to dominateand literally show themselves as being bigger than you. I wouldn't be getting on a horse like that, until it starts respecting you. Do lots of ground work, stay next to the shoulder of your horse, not in front.
    Practise throwing scary things around so your horse can get used to getting scared and let him work it out himself somehow

I know he knows i'm scared when he does it. But I try not to show it but with a 1,000lb's of muscle going in the air at you , you can't help to be scared .green person green broke horse doesn't mix I don't think. He loves to come to fence and love allitle and then he turns his butt. I think it is a reall disrespect problem. I've had him for almost a year feed him every day at the same time and he knows it to because he waiting for it. Never hit abuse nothing but love him and he wants to disrespect me. I know they are not like your family dog but still he should know by now i'm not going to eat him Thanks for all the advice,
    This post leads me to believe it's a respect issue rather than a training issue....
    I would take an approach similar to Arrow suggested and back him off. You don't want to back him since that will encourage the rearing. I would take him on a halter and leadrope in the round pen or wherever and start moving him away from you. Push his shoulder and expect him to move away, push his hip expect him to move....etc, avoid the push on the chest to back since he is rearing....teach him that it's all your space...all of it, all the time and he is to stay out of it.

    You may have to start with crop and then get to the point that when you point to his shoulder or touch is slightly he moves it away from you. You're the alpha, all the time.
