    That is such a hard thing to answer.... If you have not done any reining at all, I'd pop over to NRHA's website and look up a few trainers in your area. Research them, find one you like, and go ride a few finished horses, just to make sure you like it. It does not happen often, but I have seen a few people decide reining was not their cup of joe. Develop a friendship with said trainer, and have them help you out with getting started. I could give you all the prices I pay for stuff, but I'm in central Indiana, my prices would be way different from what you would pay.

    Your best bet is to find a trainer. Lessons are going to vary in price. I was paying $50 for and hour and recently changed trainers now I'm paying 50 for a 30-45 minute lesson. Depending on what kind of showing you do prices are going to vary. Local NRHA shows are about $35-60 a class (i think), the local western show costs $15 a class. Then there could be trailer fees/gas, horse rental fees, trainers fee, etc. It's all going to vary. Some people will nickel and dime you. My old trainer charged a flat fee of $150-200 depending on the distance. I know people who would charge a lot more too.
