Forget about equipment and focusw on commitment. Like 3 hours per day- 6 days a week.

Reining takes at least 2 years--both you and your horse--before you are ready to become an amateur.

Best if a trainer trains the horse and you ride a trained horse to learn what you need to know. Then the both of you can get back together and move forward.

I have been breeding showing riding reiners for well over a decade and it does not take 3 hours a day 6 days a week to train a reiner. It really only takes about 8-12 months to train one. The other time is the finesse that it takes to compete at a high level. I have had reiners show at 12 months of training and score a 144. Each horse is different and mine are all line bred reining horses and are with a pro reining trainer. The greenie I am working now if I had left her at the trainers for the summer could be competing by the end of the summer and that would be about 10 months of training. She probable would not be winning in the Open but she would be competitive in the Rookie Pro with the assistant trainer or Green/Rookie with me.

Reining is a lot of commitment. Especially if you do not know how to rein and you are riding a horse who does not know how to rein. Figure about an hour a day 5 days a week. I spend more time riding my finished horses then I do my green horses and all we do is lope. Keeping them legged up and fresh is really more work then training them. You have to be much more creative also.

Nrha: Yes, the bit above is the bit I'm using. And is also the bit she's talking about. I understand reining is a lot of commitment, but what isn't a lot of commitment in life? Everything we do requires a lot of commitment. I may be misinterpreting this wrong, but don't think I'm not going to commit to this, because once I do something I want, I stick with it and stay focused. If I didn't want to commit, I wouldn't have been begging for a trainer. I appreciate the advice as to how long you figure I should be working with my horse/trainer. I will be out there almost everyday.
