I had no idea anyone else on this forum had this idea. Every single barrel horse that I own has at least thirty days of reining training, if not more.
People always tell me that is a dumb idea, but when I let people ride around on my horse that has been through reining training, compared to their horse that has not, there is a noticeable difference.
Not to mention, my horses aren't prancy or insane in the gait.
