By stopping him you allow him to plant his feet in a position giving him the opportunity to rear.

One safety thing we've learned with one of our geldings who tends to go up when frustrated is to NOT PULL BACK!! Plow rein, keep your hands low and out to the sides, body weight forward and turn him in a circle until he calms down. If you pull back he is more likely to go up and you could pull him over on you. You might have someone help you out by leading him away from the barn, lunging you until he gets used to working away from the barn. Be sure to praise him big time, lots of love and scratches when he is calm and away from the barn. Look up Sylvia Scott's Natural Horsemanship website: Sylvia Scott Natural Horsemanship Training. She has a question/answer section and has probably addressed this issue before too. She's really good about getting back to you if you email her a question. Goodluck and be safe!!

In my opinion, this is a fatal horse problem. I would not keep or ride a horse that rears. It is not worth the risk of getting seriously (and I do mean SERIOUSLY) hurt!

If you want to continue with this horse send him to a trainer.. if not sell him. There is not just one thing we can tell you to do to fix this problem.. there are a serious of things that needs to happen in order to fix this problem starting with gaining his respect.

Are you saying you wouldn't even try to correct the problem?

I had a horse that reared, when he came up, I had an egg and smashed it between his ears, and he never did it again. I'm not sure if that works for most horses, but an old cowboy (and I do mean -old- LOL) told me that trick and it worked! But I agree, send him to a trainer, or have one come out and help you correct the issue :)
