I think they do it to promote the sport over there. If you try and get reining and reined cow horse into an area and there is no good trainers or people interested it will not work. I know of a lot of trainers who come over from other countrys and work with the BNT here to learn then go back and set up shop.

Well, he thinks helmets are dumb and was picking on me on that (I DO wear one after my fall because my saddle broke) till I told him that if he'll pay my disability I can take it off. This shut him up pretty good - never picked on me since that.

I'd keep looking for really good trainers around. Try to ask people in horse community, or (that's really helpful) farriers or vets if you know any. Some trainers do not advertise their business (that's how it was with this cutting trainer, my farrier told me about him).

No, it's not. I am positive they don't hire them as "workers", but as an "exchange visitors" (different type of visa and restrictions).

Different saddles,movement,and even horses.

No cows in reining,only in reined cow horse work and it has three events.
Dry work,herd,and down the fence.

Marecare beat me too it. There are differences and some similarities too but not like there use to be. IN the past you could take a cutting bred horse and do reining. Not so much any more. Most reining will change over to reining cow horse fairly easily.

Reined cow horse out side the aged events do not have herd work. You only work one cow and put them through a pattern.

Thanks, guys! I was wondering because I tried cutting, but never tried reining. May be something to take a lesson on for fun.
