Make no mistake a rearing horse is very very dangerous, it has the potential to kill you. Having a horse come over ontop of you can break your pelvis, your femoral artery runs through the pelvis if you sever or tear the femoral artery you will be dead in under 3 mins and no one will be able to help you.
If you don't tear the femoral artery, a horse coming over on you has a high likelyhood of breaking your spine which will paralyse you.

Even if you don't break your back a fractured pelvis is 6 months in a hospital bed absolutly stationary and then years before you can walk properly if ever.

I've been riding for 25+ years, I take on serious project horses that have major issues (see my Reeco posts). I take falls, I've been hurt, I will sit on a bucker, a bolter and a horse that is trying to turn itself inside out but I will NOT sit on a rearer.
I also would never expect a horse to rear whilst you are getting to know each other.[/QUOTE]


My sister had this exact thing happen to her. Laid out by a fence for over 30mins. Now has a scar from well below her belly button clear up above it. Hips hurt, may or may not be able to bare children, and that's the non gruesome stuff.

I'll have to agree with others that recommend you not throw a leg over a untrained unbroken horse. It's not mean, condescending, or rude. It's for your own safety.

The only way to actually stop a rear? Never let one happen.

No, I think the OP was curious more than anything. Trying to ask a "just in case" question. You know, trying to be prepared but without realizing the danger of rearing.

My concern is both for her and the horse. They're simply not a good match, and a noob youngster thinking she can 'love' a horse into behaving is dangerous. I don't want either of them getting hurt, but I can see it coming if her parents buy her this particular animal.

No, I never had the magickly bond thought...I was raised by a Saddlebred trainer and he didn't do stupid.

And beats me why anyone would fall into "rearing and bucking are just part of riding" though?
