Nope, it really does. My uncle told me to do this quite a few years ago. I just sat there and kinda looked at him funny for a minute. Sounds crazy enough! But the most it's taken any horse I've done it to is two water balloons. And I've fixed quite a few with it. They never even know its coming!

If you don't feel confident enough to deal with it yourself, send her to a trainer.

I have dealt with a couple trainer horses who were rearing to get out of work. First thing I did was teach them to flex from the ground (bitted). Second thing I did was teach them a one rein stop.
third thing I did: When I felt them going up, I would snatch them with one rein as to take their balance away. Then I would send them in a few tight circles (They weren't nice circles. I put the boots to them.) Then, release their face and let them walk on. Repeat.

Rearing is a very dangerous issue and I do not take it lightly. It is the ultimate disrespect. Horses are too big and can hurt you too bad. *I* don't put up with it. If I have to scare them by making them fall down when I snatch their face and step off, I will. I DO NOT put up with rearing. But, I am confident enough in myself to do it and I have experience with rear-ers.

Ok, I can see how it could work if your timing was good with it, so that they associate rearing with a shockingly unpleasant experience in a Pavlovian kind-of-way but COME ON! This is just as likely to horribly backfire for anyone who didn't consider the horse taking you for a bronc ride a form of recreation! XD

Hey now, don't bash on my recreation. Lol! I haven't had on buck with me, most just drop back down and snort and shake their head. But not saying it couldn't happen. Horses aren't robots! :P Although sometimes I wish they could pretend to be robots for a day and do everything I say.. That would be quite nice.

I love this thread for reminding me about the egg trick. My horse has decided that if we dare to stop while in the direction of the barn, he puts it upon himself to remind me by doing a jig-rearing-pawing thing. It's only 20* during the day so he's going to have some frozen egg on his head for a while.

Aaaah, those temper pops, I hate to call them rears as the horse isn't going all the way up. I won't ride a rearer as I witnessed a girl getting killed by one when I was a youth. As for a brat doing a temper pop, bring it! I have many strenous exercises to rid that display.

This article discusses how you need to learn the cause of rearing, so that you can eliminate it & how popping a horse between the ears, etc. addresses the symptom only.

Maybe she's getting sore from the work, if she does it after about an hour. My gelding will stumble around that same time. She probably just needs to get use to working for longer periods of time. Does she do it during ground work too? If so, I would give her a little pop every time she did it. Make the right answer easy and the wrong answer hard. :)
