[endurance] Rearing

Sat, 27 Jul 1996 14:44:50 -0400

I have a question for a friend: what types of training interventions are
successful with a horse who will rear and fall over backwards when asked
to perform a task he resists? Horse is a 4 year old gelded arab ridden
in short shank snaffle bit; there are no problems with tack irritating
him. The rearing occurs both in the arena and on the trail. It has not
been successful to hold him down with one knee on his shoulder because he
overpowers the person trying to hold him down.

Thanks, Rebecca
