ok so im going to a show next month and they have a jumping class.I want to enter but um says lucy has no "formal jump training". She's been jumping for 2-3 years and i trained her..took about 6 months bu yea...I know mum hates her and thats why she isnt letting me do this,but she's also letting me do the barrel race and neither of us has ANY traiing in that. She says its different...its really not. Lucy can clear just about anything but we will have some jump and barrel training too.

Also,whats the best way to teach a horse to rear? Ive read about scaring the horse to rearing but thats just stupid.

you can do other tricks that aren't rearing that are a lot safer for you and the horse. and rearing should defiantly not be the first trick you teach..

teaching horses tricks is not like teaching dogs tricks. it's not like teaching a dog to beg and such. rearing is a very unsafe trick and the only way to teach them is to scare them into rearing as rearing is a horses way of panicking because they are prey animals. you or someone else could easily accidentally trigger that trick and get kicked in the face and they would expect a reward.
also we can't really tell you anything about the jumping and barrel racing as we've never seen you do either. a trainer for both would be best because things can be very dangerous otherwise when you don't know what you're doing and expect to go and show.

It's still a really stupid thing to teach any horse. If you're goin to do that liberty stuff with him you better have experience teaching horses that and be working with someone who is

lol ur hilarious
Rearing isn't like a good thing only trained professionals should be purposely making a horse rear. Most people who teach their horse to rear on command are working on getting their horse to STOP rearing. Work on little tricks like smiling and stuff.

Congratulations on contradicting yourself. If you know what to do, don't bother asking for our advice, unless of course you're just trolling, in which case carry on I guess??
Have fun teaching your horse to rear, hope you don't plan on riding it, good luck, if I was religious I'd say god bless your soul but I'm not so

my definition of liberty:a way to play with your horse,any horse can join/quit when they want,their not forced to do anything,they have the freedom they lack when being ridden/training. They chose who they follow, their not bound by tack/ropes. They have the liberty to do what they want,not what we want. We chose to follow,to mimic,to play with our horses,to become one of them, to play as one of them. No one is forced,we all chose.


no more said.thats that.good day to all.

have fun when you have no helmet on because "oh such bond" and you cue your horse to rear and he flips over backwards on you.
Natural selection I guess.

It's a stupid thing to do and we are warning you. If you want to teach your horse to rear do it but we aren't going to help you when he has a rearing problem

Horses are half ton animals. They are not dogs. People need to treat them with respect, and realize what damage they can do. They are muh stronger than we are, and they don't always realize this. If you let them "be free" then they learn that they can boss you around and you will end up getting hurt.
Teaching a horse to rear is asking for disaster. You are essentially rewarding bad behaviour. It's no different than rewarding a horse when he kicks or a dog when he bites. It's dangerous behaviour that wouldn't be tolerated if any of the other horses you work with did it (I deeply hope anyway) an should not be taught as a trick if you are just doing it to "play around" with your horse.

Well, do you have the Young Rider issue for running faster barrels? You could try that. Do you have access to a trainer? Can you talk to your mom about how you feel about why you want to go to that jumping show? But I like you, and please, please, please don't try rearing yet. I don't know what I'd do if you died! Rearing is cool, really cool, but please wait on that. :)

Only those who risk going too far, can possibly find, how far they can go.
