I would really not suggest pushing a horse forward while pulling back on the reins. All the will accomplish is confusing your horse. Your horse knows that forward is go, and pulling back is to stop. If you confuse him [or her] like that then they won't perform at their best for you.

I'm not sure why you want your horse to rear, but it isn't really all that cool. I would go to a professional though if you want to do it. If you ask wrong it will not end up good for you or your horse.

It is possible to teach a horse to rear in different ways.
You have to know what you are doing.

BluMagic how old are you?
It isn't right the way you are jumping on horse_luver all the time.
I see it in other treads it is very disrespectful...if you want to give you opinion I would say it in a nice way? To me you are immature and I am 18 years old. NEVER USED TEXT SPEAK.

Just give the poor girl a break!
If you have an opinion say it in a nice way or just let it be!

You really need to understand what you're getting into when you teach a horse to rear. if you want them to rear while you're riding them, the aids are alot alike with the backing up aids -- so you have to be extremely careful with how you train them to rear.

I suggest that you buy a book on trick training and read what it says in the book.

good luck!

A trainer told me how. And for crying out loud I'm not an idiot!
Thanks everyone I appreciate it but again it's just become a big disagreement. :(

Here's my two cents for Barn Sour and Horse Luver...


We don't need anymore confusion on here. lol. And I don't want everyone arguing about stupid things you organize. I'm sorry but its so frustrating. Anyone that is an intermediate rider trying to teach their THREE YEAR OLD filly to rear is insane. If I taught Blu to rear that's ALL he would do. I do realize that every horse is different. But I still find this very odd!!! Why?! Ugh.....
I totally agree! UGH!
I also wonder where are the parents in situations like this?
*sigh*
I am involved in my kids lives and I would know if they were doing these thing and would obviously stop it for known reasons!
I also wonder why do young people have to show off with their horses in dangerous ways. It really does not make you cool or amazing in fact it has the opposite effect on reasonable people viewing the bad behavior!
We had some boys when I was in 4-h a gazillion yrs ago! That taught their horses to rear and one of them ended up getting hurt gee imagine it!
They were also more experienced riders than horseluver is. I thought they were stupid for teaching those things to their horses.

Exuse me?! You don't know me and you are in no position to tell me what I can and can not do miss thang! I HATE it when people have to judge me just becuase I'm 14. You think your a whole lot better? This subject has totally gotten carried away with "Horse_luver is so dumb let's just tell her she doesn't know what she's doing becuase she's 14 and has a different way of handling horses than us!" Well I'm tired of it! And I don't give a crap if any of you pull the "oh we are being more mature becuase we are just agreeing with everyone else becuase this girl doesn't know what she's doing." Well let me tell you something! I get enough of this crap at my boarding stable. Older people telling me I don't know what I'm doing becuase I'm young. I'm renamed 'Little Girl' at my freeking boarding stable. Fine do what you want with your "oh calm down horse luver! No one is attacking you!" Bullcrap!
Horse_luvr4e...I can understand you speaking like that to blumagic but paintsaqha sounds like an ADULT, you can atleast speak to her with a little more respect. I personally am a little tired of your offensivness. If someone ever disagree's with you in stating their opinion, you act like its a personal assault. Underneath it all they are just trying to protect you because it IS dangerous. If you can't take it all in stride I suggest you stop posting and find a different forum that doesn't care because obviously horseforum is full of people who care about your wellbeing.

Im sorry you feel that way. If any other person wanted to teach their horse to rear, they would get the same response. Im 20 and if I posted that I wanted to teach my horse to rear...they'd say the same thing. Because it's TRUE. It is dangerous and only a professional SHOULD do it. But if it's something you want to do then do it, you don't have to respond back all offensive saying everyone thinks your stupid because you're 14. You could either ignore it OR say "thank you for your warning, i'll be careful :)" All I am saying is, when you reply back saying things like people think you're stupid, it STARTS something. You can't completely place the blame on everyone else. That's not fair.
