    take an egg out of your pocket. Then without force crack the egg over the horses head (when the horses front legs are off the floor - it is too late once the front hooves have reconnected with the ground

    I have not heard of this but I will definiately try it the next time it's warm enough to ride. Call me a wuss but here in Ky, it's 25 degrees. My 13 yo daughter is in the round pend working w/ Charlie right now. Where am I? I'm in the house, typing on the computer, where it's warm.

    In one of my other posts I mentioned Charlie getting into my building where we kept their feed. Since that incident the feed is in our house. At this building is where Charlie & I would have problems with him rearing. He wud place his head in the middle of the building. Almost like he was in time-out sticking his nose in the corner. It was almost comical if it wasn't so aggravating. This is where the rearing wud start. It never wasn't a "hi-ho silver rear" but maybe 3-4" popping up off the ground, just letting me know he didn't want to leave the security of the building.

    Now that I've moved the feed elsewhere, I wonder if I will have the same problem the next time I'm under saddle?

    When he rears when you are riding him try smacking him in the top of the head with your whip, I know it sounds cruel but it should work, he will be anxious that something is going to hit him if he puts his head up next time.

    Anxious is the right word. IMO (and only my own personal opinion I might add) anxious is not what you want to achieve. If anything it could make things worse. I'd be darn sure first that the rearing wasn't due to some type of soundess issue first before trying anything else. And I agree with the round pen point. Round pens are supposed to be used as a tool, but use it too much and it becomes a crutch.

    horse rearing

    I definatlely think you should get the horses back checked and everything but seriously try hiting him on the head, even if I is due to pain if he rears he needs to be deciplined in some way because you don't want to teach him that he is allowed to get away with it, it wont hurt him it will just make him think twice about rearing next time as he wont wont a smack on the head
