    My previous mare would rear in crossties and become extremely dangerous any time she was tied, She came to me like this, and my fault for not seeing her tied before I bought her. So I fed her and then tied her in her stall while eating, at first I would untie her as soon as she was done, and then I gradually increased the amount of time I left her tied for after eating. Then I moved her to cross ties, and no I did not feed her in the cross ties. I let her be for a min or two, then slowly increased the time. She leant and it worked for me.

    Very sensible approach to the problem. Horses can get used to anything given time and a little patience. Well done!
