    Rearing horse brake?

    So i've never ridden a horse that reared up on me however I do expect my newest horse to do that because at some point I imagine she will as we get to know one another how do I stop her? When a horse rears how do you stop them from rearing? I know martingales stop them from even attempting to rear but what if I don't have one... and she rears. Lol

    Please do NOT buy this mare. You're going to get badly hurt at some point.

    Oh goodness...Training takes time, and if this is the same mare you posted about earlier you aren't going to be able to just hop on and ride. It's going to take time and patience and you're going to have to show her that you're the leader. I agree with SpeedRacer, I would let the mare go to someone who has a good amount of experience. A horse that rears is not a good place to start learning, you have to work your way up to that. And if she would rear on you and you do the wrong thing it could reinforce her or even make her flip over, not to mention you could get severely hurt in the process......

    Oh wow. Martingales do NOT stop a horse from attempting to rear. Don't buy this mare if you don't know how to handle rearing and you think she will.

    We are giving you advice. Do not ride a rearing horse.
    It's not about liking you it's about being over horsed. If you have any inkling the horse will rear, stay away from it.

    Horses don't 'get stressed' from not having grass, and just because you think an animal likes you doesn't mean they won't hurt you. They're not people, and don't think like we do.

    You only know how to walk and trot? Yeah, you do NOT need to be taking on a young horse with this many issues and a major lack of respect for humans.

    Yes, get thee to a trainer and take lessons. Most intelligent thing you've posted!

    Do you realize that most horses don't rear?
    If she's a nice horse, and she was recommended for you by an instructor or a professional, chances are she will most likely not rear. Trust your trainer to choose a horse for you that's appropriate for your level. Learning to ride is a wonderful thing. Find a horse that will teach you properly.

    It sounds like she's a kid that is new to the horse scene. Sounds to me like she thinks rearing is just something horses do.
