I train reiners with my wife down here in Tennessee. I've been preaching for years that any horse can compete in any sport. When people didnt believe me I took a very nice built walking horse to an ARHA open breed show and won the open reining class against a former NRHA futurity finalist who was a standing stud. If you go with a TB I would suggest studying confirmation real well and check out how some of the top reiners are built. Keep in mind Quarter Horses are right out of TB lines. As far as stopping your horse on a soft dirt road, if its all you have and its safe for you and the horse then its what you have to use. Some of the top reining trainers in the industry right now started by stopping in the same conditions or even worse. Again just make sure its safe for you and the horse.
