When a horse rears do not pull against them, carry a dressage or longe whip and drive her forward from her hindquarters. Make her pay by moving forward and doing some sort of work.
If you have a helper what also may work is have them walk on her other side if she goes up you stay next to her shoulder and have them snap her on the belly with a towel or whip, this will make coming down her own idea to protect herself without her becoming resentful toward handlers.
Goodluck! Rearing horses are a difficult bunch :)
Yes I tried the advice I recieved before and for "MY" horse it only seemed to scare her. When she rears she isnt doing it out of fright,
Her body language is saying that much. So I thought maybe driving her forward would work and it has been making her go down in the front and it doesnt really scare her. And then I just read your reply, so I know now someone else has used that method before as well. But I do not belive she is rearing out of fright, like firelight27 and desperate horsewife are saying, I belive it is a respect issue.
If I seemed disrespectful about the advice I recieved before, that is not what I intended, Those methods just don't work for my Specific horse but I am still very thankful for your help.
