Doesn't look like serious training to me. It's really normal to break 2yr old QHs for futurities around here...

She is beautiful and looks like she is coming along so great! Looking forward to more updates. =]

Yep, they have to be started as 2 year olds to get into many of the AQHA reining futurities. They are generally for 3 year olds and it takes more than just a month or 2 to make a reining horse.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Well Smrobs, if it doesn't work out I will try to ship him out to ya! I love that picture of her just standing there, but she does that all the time! She is a lazy girl! ;)

Slick, thanks so much. We (the trainers and I) are very pleased with her. I will keep you updated for sure. Look for more pictures in about a month from now. I visit her weekly but only watch her sessions monthly!

She is in training so that she can compete at the AQHA, CS, NRHA Futurities next year. And nope, it doesn't take just a couple months to make a reining horse.

RJ she had a fracture in her jaw the spread all they down to her teeth, she had massive infections because bacteria was getting into the "crack" of the fracture. She had surgery on June 17th.

Yeah I love that one too, she was paying attention to the kids! She better kick some butt next year, if not I will have a very well trained trail pony..lol! Kidding! :)

She is SO pretty!!

Reining girl, I do not agree that it takes 2 years to teach a horse reining. At all.

It really depends on how they are trained and who is training them. Some horses pick it up amazingly fast and others need a lot of work. However, to have a horse that will be competative at the levels needed for the AQHA and NRHA futurities, they really should have at least 8 months to a year under pretty intense training.
