Post Rearing?

So on Monday, we moved Patches to my trainer's barn to board her there. Yesterday I took her in the barn, she was really good just kept whinning back to the other horses. It was raining out so i was surprised how good she was doing. The i took her into the indoor and walked her around. Well there were 2 other horses in there, a dog she doesnt like, and she could hear the rain on the tin roof. I think she got frustrated at everything and reared up. I just held on to the lead rope and once her feet hit the ground I kept walking her. She was starting to calm down and I just kept walking her when she decided to stop and not move and rear up again. so I did the same thing. Did I do the right thing and if not what should I have done? Thanks! =)

To see the wind's power, the rain's cleansing, and the sun's radiant life, one need only to look at the horse.

I personally wouldve given Rena hell if she reared like that, for her, that is NOT acceptable. But shes a fully grown, full trained, horse who i expect a lot from...
is your horse young? does she have a history of rearing? or was it for sure just the stressful situation? or does she always rear when she gets stressed?

If there are no horses in heaven... im not going.

My horse is a yearling and thats the only time she has ever reared. I think she was just stressed out and I didnt want to stress her more. I've seen enough horses that rear and then there owners give them hell for it and then the horses just rear even higher to get away from them. And then it turns into a never ending cycle. I wasnt in any danger and even though my mom almost freaked I had it under control lol.

you just have to knwo HOW to give them hell ;) then they dont rear again.
I think that because shes just a yearling, i would discourage rearing, but she'll get better at handling stressful situations by trusting you more and not misbehaving so much :)
