How do you train a horse to rear? I wanted to teach my little mini how to and I need some tips.

I’ve never done it before but what I’ve seen people do is have the horse on a halter and lead rope and face them so you are directly in front. Then you run backwards so the horse is running towards you and then suddenly stop and give a tap on their chest. Again, I have no idea if this will work but it’s what I’ve seen. I’m sure you could find a video on YouTube!
