    I do basic liberty with my horse, who is a 17 hh oldenburg, but I would be terrified of him ever rearing not on command or if I accidentally signal for him to rear! I think I would only teach it to a mini since I am not that experienced.

    I tried teaching my horse this but he got confused so he tried to go onto the lunge a few times and suggest other tricks. He was just doing what he knows and he only wants to please. He raised his head when giving the cue and almost went off the ground, but I just feel like it wasn't fun and the way it should be. He's fully desensitised to the whip btw. Can you help with this?

    Idiot… you don't teach a damn horse how to rear! You spook them into doing it… horses rear naturally, stop taking credit for what they do naturally! Fail!

    This was very helpful but i would recommend not doing braids because when they come down from the rear it will slap their face and neck πŸ˜€

    Say if you have taught your horse this already – how would you do it from on horseback so transfer the cue from ground to riding 😊? (My horse has gotten pretty good from the ground and hasn't done it without asking) 😁

    Impressive series of videos. I do appreciate that you mentioned the bad behaviour that often arises from teaching a horse to rear. I have to say to the average viewer though, don't teach your horse to rear please, teach it to lie down, teach it to bow, just not rearing. I do training and fixing problem horses, and have had several brought in that had been ruined by inexperienced people teaching them to rear, they would simply rear all the time and were too dangerous to handle and ride for their owners. Rearing is something that very very easily overdone, unless you have perfect control and discipline it will become a problem. Even very highly regarded horse trainers will usually refuse to teach a horse to rear for those reasons (if the horse will be ridden by other people). If you still want to teach your horse to rear and feel you have the discipline and control to do so, consider what could happen if your horse ever needed to be rehomed and someone with less control and discipline were to handle him.

    I love your channel. I have been training my two horses Liberty using your videos they are doing great. But I have a small problem with my gelding. When he rears he does not fold his front feet in they just stay straight. Is their something I could do to help him or fix this or does it just have to come naturally? Thanks for the great videos they are so helpful😊

    I have a question with training my horse to rear. When he is following me and I try to get my horse into an upward stance he either turns to the right or left when I try to get him into an upwards stance. Will he still learn rear if he turns as I do what you do?

    I love your videos! They are full of great info, straight to the point. Whereas most other videos i would watch for 20 mins and either not finish the video or not get good info from it. Your videos are excellent. They arent so short you learn nothing and they arent so long that people stop watching because its boring. Please keep making these!

    All of your videos are very helpful and inspiring! You also make it seem so easy, as I currently also have a Percheron QH cross and he seems to be a bit of a slow learner, but it's worth all the time and effort, nothing can't be fun whenever a rider has their horse =)

    I tried this a little different with my horse. It worked so well. Although I teach my horse three different ways to rear.
