Dressage and Reiners

Of all the western disciplines I have always felt that reining is the closest to dressage.

Want proof?

I particularly liked the way the riders swapped round and proved that the underlying principles of good riding and communication with the horse are the same no matter what your discipline.

And who knew.........Camel dressage.

For those that are having trouble getting flying changes....well camels do them also.

This is amazing!

I'm a dressage rider and I always wondered if there might be a Western discipline somewhere out there for me. Now I think I've found it!

I may be imagining it though, but I thought the cowboy did better on the dressage horse than the dressage rider did on the western horse... particularly with the pirouettes.

I tottally agree I always thought reining was just like dressage only faster...and western...lol
That was cool how they switched horses, but I could tell the western horse was not liking the idea lol
