What is this trainer certified in?
Seriously, I would not own a horse that reared....period. It would be down the road for sure. Rearing is a serious problem and big time dangerous and it comes down to total LACK of correct training and a mindset problem in the horse itself. In other words, the horse has an unwilling mindset so it's reaction which is resistance....is to go up.
