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.

Moments of bad judgement make the best stories..

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.
