Well, I would not agree with Rostersmom, you cany let him do what ever he wonts. And you should just keep working with him! He will lrean that he is not the boss, you r! You tell him whos bos...lol! He looks cute from his pic thoe! Looks a little cubby, don't worry its better to be fat than skinny for a horse..lol. All horses get that way!

I agree with new image. There is alot to be done here. Sounds like he is barn sour and that is part of the problem.
Try working the crap out of him at the barn, like circles sidepasses flexing and so on. Then you could get off and walk him away from the barn to let him rest, keep doing this and get farther from the barn each time. Start riding him from the barn after his work out and if he starts rearing it is ok to get off and make him work! Like She said be FIRM! This is not a joke and you will NOT tollerate it.
Remember like they said if you are moving his hind end he can't rear, take the rein and crank his face into your leg! Make it horrible for him to even consider rearing! I also think it is importent for you to really think about your skills, you don't need to tell anyone else but you need to be honest with your self. Is this something you can handle yourself or not? There is no shame if the awnser is no.
I had a rearing butthole who would rear and then midair spin and slam his front down to dislodge me. Never used to untill I worked cows! I was even with other horses!! I rode it out for over two hours and yanked him into circles wich helped but I won't lie, scared me really bad. I took him out and he started so I longed him and kept getting back on etc.. I seemed to have fixed it ( at least he hadn't done it for me since) But I didn't enjoy riding. He scared me, and that is ok. He is happy with a new person who loves him and I have horses I enjoy now!

The problem with the egg cracking thing or hitting them over the head when they rear up is it really isn't correcting the problem. Here's a video with some good information:

When he rears up do something like a one rein stop. Take ur hand slide it down the rain and the pull to that side it will then turn his head around force him to come back down You just have to do it before he totally rears when he just starts. . Also lots of longing work.

Good video, Eternal. Clinton really does know his stuff. I use a tie down on my Mustang when we ride, and I'm always reviewing the "emergency brake" of the 1 handed rein to my boys.

As far as the egg to the head...I'd be too worried you will get a headshy horse.

If they don't see you do I think they may not become headshy??? Because it may get in there head that when ever I rear this thing brakes on my head and goopy junk runs down my face lol.

I'm with Rooster here. Rearing is a serious issue that should not be tackled by amateurs. Take the horse to a professional before you are seriously hurt. Some horses, the little tricks work - cascade was lucky. I know of a young lady that refused to take her horse to a trainer, tried to fix it herself, and ended up with a broken back, and is now a life long quadrapalegic. Just not worth it. Get a pro.

I used to own a mare (just sold her actually) who would rear a lot. She was checked for pain and discomfort several times and that simply wasn't the cause. Bailey is an alpha mare. She just didn't wanna do whatever she was asked and woul start rearing. I'm a nervous rider, but I didn't give up. In Clinton's vid Eternal posted, he shows the leg yielding exercise. You could feel when Bailey was going to rear so I'd just do that to her to prevent it. The thing with rearers is if they get the chance to stop or slow down, up they go. It's all about keeping the horse moving forward and actively.
I was told to crack Bailey over the head with an egg. What a ridiculous thought, you say the rearing's dangerous, why on earth would you want to panic a horse any further... I can only see that being more fault for disaster, as a horse panicking is not something I'd like to be on. In fact, I just broke my leg, because my incredibly quiet horse went into panic mode. I certainly wouldn't want to smack Bailey over the head and have her bolt off on me.
I sold her to a family who have two little girls to ride her. They're having no problems with her rearing because they followed along with keeping her feet moving and have done a lot more ground work with her, and have more control over her feet.
If you feel inexperienced to deal with the rears, I would get experienced help. But it's not something that you cannot attempt to fix. Anything with horses can be dangerous. It's the risk we take every time we get up in the saddle.
Good luck.

I don't know if this will help you or not, but back when my gelding was younger he wtried rearing as a "out" or just to let me know he did NOT want to do something. He started with small rears, then he figured that didnt scare me so he started going straight up. Well he finally quit after I started catching him when he was trying to pop up, I would lean forward and turn him to get him off balance so he couldnt get his front feet up off the ground. He eventually quit, but I couldnt trust to let anyone else ride him for quite a while.
