You should NEVER teach a horse to rear. It may look cool when professional display riders do it, but the key word is PROFESSIONAL. They are fully aware of the danger of the situation they are putting themselves in.
Also, the horses people train to rear can NEVER be sold. It is putting the buyer in danger to pass on a horse that could be potentially dangerous - and that's what it is. No reputable trainer, even the most famous, will ever teach anyone else's horse to rear, only their own, and they are aware they will have to keep those horses in safe hands who know how to deal with their kind of training forever.

The levade is a different matter - it's more an extreme form of collection than a rear, and takes years of high level dressage training to attain.

Go for a safe trick instead, one that wouldn't kill anyone if aids were misread or the horse passed into the hands of someone who didn't know about it. The worst case scenario of teaching your horse to do this? It gets sold, and then sold again, on and on and people discover its dangerous 'problem' of rearing, until eventually it ends up as a dangerous horse in a low end auction, and on a truck bound to Mexico. Harsh, but it happens every day.

I see. And for those of you who do not know, I am Horse Luvers aunt. And Janie is not her horse it's mine.

Horse Luver I'm taking Janie back. You are not teaching her properly. I seen in another thread that you were going race her? Improper care of my horses leads to no use of them.

I do not want you to teach her to rear becuase you don't have the exsperience to handle a horse like her.

I am very sorry everyone.

Thank you!
I also have been reading conflicting things and wondered of her experience just by some of the questions...
And things that were said.

The apparent lack of experience by horse luver was my main reason for distress in this thread about her teaching her horse to rear. Her posts have been across the board: using a stud chain for transport, being a natural horsemanship trainer, teaching a 3 year old to jump, teaching her horses spin, struggling to ride bareback, not sure how to use spurs...and then she wants to know how to teach a 3 year old who she plans to teach all of the above, to rear. It just sounded like a recipe for disaster to me.

I of course do not know the extent of horse Luver's riding and training experience, but based on the posts I have read - It sounded like a green horse + mildly experienced rider/horseperson (at best) - trying to teach rearing.

That was my main reason for posting against rearing. I do agree with Kyani that it should be saved for professionals (of incredibly savvy horse people who intend to keep that horse forever and ride it themselves).

Yes the horse is a green horse however she does know the basics. She isn't allowed on this forum anymore.

The horse is now back in my hands. Doing more dressage.

Sorry everyone for all the problems she has caused.

I tought my Standardbred, Mojo to rear. I would pull back on the reins & que forward & say "UP!". He got the hang of when I said "Up". He never done it unless I said Up. So its your choice to teach your horse what you want. Good Luck if you decide yes. If you need any help. I could help you.
