Sure, I know of plenty of people that haul in once a week or twice a month to maintain their trained horse. Also know of some that basically are doing the training themselves and getting regular guidance from a trainer.
What makes that easy is having the trainers available, close by and the money to do so. (I found reining lessens around here average $50, still cheaper than keeping the horse in training full time.)
But the time spent with a trainer will depend on a couple of factors, how much maintenance the horse requires, even though one may be fully trained some are easier to maintain than others. And the time, effort, consistency and knowledge of the rider.

ETA- I forgot to add, you don't have to do one or the other(haul-in for lessons or kept in full time training). Know a few people that would put a horse in full training for a month or two then take them home and haul in for lessons. Did both so it was a little cheaper but the horse would go in for a "tune-up" as needed.

GH here is a horse that would get you started to learn the ropes. Priced right Smart Peppy Jane, 2007*AQHA*Liver Chestnut*Mare - for sale

WEll, the price is good, that is for sure! Yikes! She has good circles, but honestly-from those videos, that is about all I can tell. The first video would look to be from her futurity run in 2010-she is being ridden 2 handed, so I am guessing. In the circle videos she looks like she may be a tough one to get changes on. Again-a guess, but the rider takes her slightly on the diagonal rather than straight across, like you would in a reining pattern. I think this is to help get the change.

She looks like a nice mare at a nice price for sure, but I think she needs a good tune up. I would guess she has not been used much recently, which is not all bad.

Not a real competitive reiner for sure, but would be good to do some Ranch horse stuff with & local Novice/rookie classes.Stuff GH I get the impression would like to start out & try with. Looks like a novice rider,I'm sure the mare would go better in more seasoned hands.Never saw A ranch horse class till this summer at an AQHA show,looked like a fun ,something I wouldn't mind

She looks right in a lot of ways, very tempting, but one step at a time here. First step I need to get back in the saddle, which is next in the agenda.
