Cool picture, but that is very dangerous. I wonder if a pretty picture was worth it? :/

Colourize Featured By Owner Oct 21, 2013
If the horse is properly trained and can do this on command, there is very little danger in it. He is not rearing because he is angry or wants to hurt her, but because he has been trained to do so when she give him a certain command. Once he has reared, he will get a little horse candy and be a pretty happy little guy:)

yes, thanks. I would also assume this. Avoiding the very obvious problem that trick rearing is very dangerous to both horse and rider, there is the fact that the handler (who would normally stand to cue a trick rear) has lowered her self, 1 into striking range, 2 into a spot that if the horse lost balance would fall forward towards, 3 into a position that does not readily allow her to move out of the way. :S

To compare what I mean with the angles: colourize.deviantart.com/art/E…
That one was shot slightly more to the left. I could have taken yet another few steps to the left and shot the photo completely from the side. But the further left I go, the more obvious it gets that there's a bit of distance between them.

Colourize Featured By Owner Oct 23, 2013
This particular horse has done this for qite some time. The way he rears is always the same, and he has great balance. It is very easy to predict where he is landing.
About him being close... If you look at the photo, you can see that I stood a little in front of the horse. I did that deliberatly in order to make it appear as if they were closer than they really were to fit it better into the photo. Had I stood furter to the left, it would have been perfectly clear that distance between them were much grater than it appears in this photo, and that the horse wouldn't even be close once he landed. The angle was chosen because of the dramatic effect it created. The photo is not uploaded to show safe tricktraining, since this is not a horse forum. People used to say that a photo never lies. Most of us that do photography knows that... Well, it does;)
The horse is quite easy to work with, and has at one point even had one of our nations best showjumping riders practice with him for fun. I would dare to say that what they do during their showjumping sessions is probably way more dangerous than what was going on here.

But we all have different oppinions about things, which is alright. If you think that trick training is dangerous, then you are perfectly entiteled to have that oppinion. I however do not agree. Sure, I've seen people who lack the correct communication and control to their horses, where the trick training has been executed poorly and might cause some amount of danger. I on the other hand know of plenty of people who know perfectly well what they are doing, have a communication with the horse that any of us would envy and where the trick training poses no more danger than if they would be sitting on the horse.

Id assume this horse has already been trained to rear on command, often used for modeling or tv shows;o
