Horses rear for a number of reasons, but it is always a backward motion. It is incredibly dangerous, and you need to retrain him to go forward as quickly as you can. Lunging offers a safer method of retraining him. You can remind your horse to move forward without the risk of him going up and flipping on you. I recommend giving lunging a try if your horse has picked up this habit.
