Typically it will take about 20-24 months from start to finish on a reiner and that is with the trainer riding the horse. The fastest I have had a horse in the show ring was 8-9 months at that point if she had been shown in a snaffle she would have done very well. As it was she was being shown one handed and needed a bit of help about 1/2 way through the run. However she then went on at about 14 months of training to mark a 144. However that is not at all the norm.
As for needing to have the horse going in a curb and one handed in free style. That is really not true. Free Style reining is the one time you can 2 hand your horse even in a curb. That being said. You still have to be very solid on all your maneuvers. A month of training is not even close to enough to even think about showing a reiner.
