Very true. It's impossible to find reining or cow horse trainers around here.

I just want to do little local things... Maybe even try local team penning?

I have a trainer now that has ridden the real deal and trained some local level competing reining horses... But she herself is not into showing... That's all I could find...

I am trying to remember------last year Williamsport Riding club ( I think they have a FB page) had some reining classes in their shows-maybe they have someone who could help you. I think Rocky Dare is in the NJ area-now sure who else.......Look into EPRHA and maybe that will help.......or in the reining magazine.......other than that I know a trainer in Erie.......

This is true but with young prospects it doesn't hurt any

Many I know drive anywhere from 2-6 hours to their reining trainers, depending. There just aren't that many who are good, and get results without being excessively rough, IMO. You may have more luck finding a reined cow horse trainer? Not sure. Maybe look under the NRCHA site. Good luck!

I know it is tough. YOu may want to go to some of the shows this summer in NJ-EPRHA sponsors them.....then if you start to meet folks and talk to them you might find someone who knows someone.........That is my only other thought. I wish I lived somewhere else, too.
