Horse rearing during reverse of direction

08 Apr

I recently rescued a 7 yr old Arab mare that was pretty green. The handling that had been done with her wasn\’t a positive so she has some fear issues. I have all of your DVD\’s and am wondering how to deal with a specific issue. I realize you are very busy and I would understand if you aren\’t able to answer. When lunging on the ground, when I ask her to reverse directions, the will rear up and then walk off. How can I stop the rearing? Thank you for taking the time to read this : ) God Bless


Here are two ideas.
1) do the reverse more often and at higher speed (trotting, reversing every 2 circles etc)
2) video tape the problem and send me a youtube copy and I can be more specific for you.
