Rearing Owner Factsheet

A horse may respond to certain circumstances by rearing. This may range from small rears with the front feet raised only a couple of feet off the ground, to a full rear where the horse is standing vertically on its hind legs. A full height rear poses risks to both the rider and the horse. In addition to unseating the rider, the horse may lose balance and fall over backwards.
