Trick training and teaching the rear

What are your thoughts?
Has anyone trick trained their horses? I am curious if they still ride the same and would like any advice or experiences, please share!!!

Tess is trick trained.Shes knows rear, spanish walk, bow and working on lay down. Many people at the start we anti-rearing but if taught correctly it is fine! Tess knows her boundaries, she accidently does the trick and I just give a firm "no" and she knows she wasn't meant to do it. Under saddle you wouldnt even know she is trick trained!

Teaching some tricks isn't bad. Teaching a horse to rear can be. Teaching to smile, nod, kneel or bow, to lay down, sit and so on would be fine.

Does you horse need more regular training? When training a horse something new, they will try what they already know before they get what you are asking. Take my wife's horse. A friend taught him to rear on command. Now, if he gets confused or frustrated, he will rear. It takes more effort to get him to not rear and get the new thing.

THat happened to the POA my daughter rode for 15 years. He was 2 when we got him. She taught him rear and after that, he would randomly rear, it pretty much ruined him.

I would LOVE it if Sophie could learn to rear, on cue only.
( this is a drill team horse....)

My horse knows how to smile paw and she is working on bow... I kinda taught her how to rear but stopped because she sometimes to get attention she will smile or paw. So I just don't know if I should teach her I still might I just don't know... I don't want her to start rearing when I am riding her or leading her or something. But no body would know she does tricks when I ride.

Id never teach a horse to rear. I'd leave that to the pros.
My friend had a horse fall backwards on her because she accidentally have the que and the horse was having a bad day. All it did was break her leg. She was lucky.

I'd leave the rear till later on. Id only ever train a horse to rear that I would NEVER sell.

Actually I wouldn't at all but doesn't mean others shouldn't as long a they know what they're doing.

Work on bow smile dancing horse soccer is a good one!

I really wouldn't recommend teaching a horse to rear on command.
It could turn out very, very badly.
