Reining clinics

What prices do you usually see in reining clinics and do you think a reining clinic benefits the average horse/rider?

"Riding a horse is not a gentle hobby, to be picked up and laid down like a game of solitaire. It is a grand passion. It seizes a person whole and, once it has done so, he will have to accept that his life will be radically changed." -Ralph Waldo Emerson

I'm not sure if I can be alot of help here since I've never ridden in any reining specific clinics, but I did go to a couple reined cowhorse clinics last fall and another this spring. They included some reining work as well as some cow work. As I recall they were about $125.00 for a Saturday and Sunday. Pretty reasonable, I thought, but I believe she was doing it more to promote interest in the sport in the area than anything. I would imagine most clinics cost more than that, particularly if the clinician is well known beyond the local level. I have a hard time imagining you wouldn't benefit.

I pay $125 for a one hour private lesson through the barn I work at on the horse I re-trained for the barn (aka, my horse). They don't like to encourage her do reining (she will spin if the student takes the inside leg off on a small circle, sensitive to lead swapping, etc.) So I stopped since I can't practice what I learn with her. Sorry a little off topic there. Lol.... The other reason I stopped is because A) my trainers lessons are $50 an hour, so I can "buy" 2 1/2 hours of her time Vs only 1 hour with the reining guy. 2) It's cheaper to just go to his barn and take a lesson. My sister and I go for the day, he gives us a 2 hour lesson for $40 each and we split gas. Plus we get to see the sights which is nice! :) Gotta weight the pros and cons! :P

Cost will varry depending on what trainer or trainers are giving the clinic and how many days and through who. Some NRHA Affiliates will put on clinics through an NRHA program and those tend to be a bit cheaper. However if you want to take a clinic from a top trainer you are looking about $350-$500 for the weekend and that would include your stall and such.

Yes reining training can help any horse and rider.
