I AM VERY AWARE OF THE DANGERS OF TEACHING A HORSE TO REAR.

Also,what about the dangers of OTHER EVENTS?

How about Show Jumping? A horse and rider could be killed instantly.
And Barrel Racing. One wrong turn,the horse is down with a broken leg.
And pleasure. A horse could spook,a rider could fall,shatter her skull,a horse could break a leg,get a foot trapped in the bridle etc

We also are in danger of even INTERACTING with a horse. One move form a horse and we could be dead. WHY should trick training be any different? And BEFORE you answer "Well,its jsut not right,it goes against the nature of the horse," etc. think about other disciplines. Naturally, a horse wouldnt run barrels, pick up his feet to gait, or naturally do dressage movements(uper level,sidepassing,leg yielding etc.).[/quote]
Agreed, Well Said.

Yeah horses are dangerous, so its VERY intelligent to train them to do a """trick""" for rewards, a new way they can kill us

Aside from the rearing - because I have no clue how to teach a horse to rear, lol
Maybe try asking your parents to take some jumping lessons, or if you're able to pay for them yourself then set them up. Also, if your parents haven't seen you jump, then ask them to watch you/watch a video so that they can see that both you and your horse are capable.

she carries me away from all my fears,
and when the world threatens to fall asunder,
her mane is there to wipe away my tears."
I love you Twinkle!!!
