I would have someone who,has ridden reiners, ride her, to see her training level, because, as you know, in order for a horse to respond to a cue, they have to be taught it!
Then a reiner is trained to work off of legs and seat like any other horse, plus a finished reiner is going to be up in the bridle, thus working off the neck rein, and with more lightness and feel then , say a western rail horse, recreational horse ect
In other words, they are taught to move away from pressure, just like any horse, and one whom is able to be ridden one handed, and has learned to stay evenly between the reins and legs
while one uses trotting while training a reiner, reining patterns themselves don't have any trotting steps.
Once the hrose has the basics, there are ways you set them up and teach a correct spin,sliding stop ect, and your best bet is to watch some reining videos
Larry Trocha is by no means the only reiner, nro the most acomplished, far as any show titles, but he does have a series of videos on youtube that you might find helpful
I will post a few, and you can google some more. There are also some good books on reining, by people like bob Loomas, Craig Johnson, Tim McQuay,etc
