Ok. The rearing horse was entirely the fault of the rider there. She yanked his mouth. She went from no pressure to extreme pressure.

The smacking on the head...really? I've had a friend that cracked eggs on her horses head to stop the rearing that was from the horse having gotten a rider off that way, but after two eggs the hrose stopped. It thought it had bloodied its head and hasn't done it again in the 2 years since then. Smacking the horse on the head was stupid, and the horse probably didn't even put the two together. It was after the horse had come back down, and reinforced that coming down was wrong. DUH!

I don't even care to watch the second one after seeing that.

lol I've heard of people using water balloons and it made the horse stop. But hitting the horse on the head is definitely rediculous, I could understand smacking the horse on the rump or spining the horse in a circleing, when the horse is misbehaving but from the looks of it the rider caused the problem.

Exactly. Her horse started rearing after she allowed a friend to ride her and the horse reared becaue of the rider and the rider got off. When she got on her the horse continued to rear for a few weeks until she got tired of it. Eggs happened to be close not water balloons, so that was what she used. My mom just pushed on the back of her horse's neck. He thought that he had hit something so he quit....lol.

The rider caused the problem, so in that case if I were the rider I would not have reacted that way. I would have riden it out, moved forward, adn asked more softly for a stop.

Please pay attention and read all the posts before making accusations. The girl who posted this is NOT the rider. As much as I disagree with the video, attacking the OP when it wasn't her just makes you look foolish and causes misconceptions and bad reputations.

I'd like to start first off with a reminder of the conscientious ettiquette policy. Let's keep things friendly here and use this video as a way to educate people and not attack.

As for the rearing horse, I watched the video. The first rear was completely the riders fault. As for hitting the horse on the head. I'm the owner of a rearer and I can promise you that it is a very dangerous habit. It's also a hard habit to break, with some horses it is un-breakable.

This rider is the cause of the rears with her heavy handedness and her riding style. This horse could probably be fixed with the right rider/trainer combination. However, when a horse rears, hitting it between the ears IS a tried and true method. However, this rider waited way to long making the punishement have no meaning what so ever. The thought process between hitting a horse between the ears is that the horse thinks it's hitting it's head. It has to be done on the up-movement and it has to be ONE solid hit. That's it. It doesnt even have to be HARD, but it has to be timed perfectly. This rider waited until the horse was on the ground before smacking and then she just hit every which way. Not a good method at all.

She also is not using any counter measures.

Yes, well said. If in a situation you can use counter measures, use the most sensible, gentle measure first.

Allow me to show you a situation when there were no counter measures.
*Note that I am not encouraging people to go out a try this themselves. This girl rides problem horses and young horses for a living, and this particular mare has a history of rearing and flipping over. She was at a show when the horse reverted back to her old habits (once and rearer, always a rearer) and almost flipped over at the in-gate. You can see that the mare made no second thoughts about it, and the rider reacted lightning quick with the best option at the time.

That sharp yank with the rein is one of my favorites that I use w/ sweetpea. It knocks him off balance and forces him to put his all fours on the ground. What happened to her has happened to me before as well, the spin is so fast you get thrown from the saddle. Nice video.

The rider in the rearing video is one of my favs on youtube... I never would have guessed that she is the type of rider who would do that. I have never seen her be so heavy handed like that before either. I am so, so sad to see her ride like that. She is normally a very lovely rider and does well with most horses, but that...? That was heartbreaking... ),:

I leased a horse that when he was being broken in, they would make him rear and would hit him over the head with an open water jub when he did go up. This made him think that he cracked open his head. Luckly he was very trusting of people so he was fine with people touching his ears by the time that I was riding him. Poor guy though. "/

...The actually made him rear up? Okay... That's very ass-backwards to me.
