You should see if you have a localish reining club that will allow you to get your feet wet. We have one here in NW Washington, and it is primarily stock horses, but any breed is welcome, and it is meant to get green reiners started. They have several levels of beginner and youth classes. It's a good way to get started, without having to be at top level.

Yes! You can ride unregistered horses in reining and cutting -- but it is pretty much a waste of time unless a well-bred horse's papers have been lost.

For NRHA, every horse needs a 'license to compete' with a name that he has for life and a Vet verification as to his age. NRHA has all of the applications and paperwork to send in. You also need to be a member.

You will also see many horses with dual registrations in APHA and AQHA. These horses usually sell for more, but they can compete in 3 different Associations.

Thanks for the tip. I have been trying to find a trainer and a way to get my feet wet. I live in a small state (population and money wise) with not a lot of opportunities sometimes so I haven't found a lot yet.

My horse is a grade but obviously stock type so not trying to fit a square peg in a round hole that way.

Thanks for the info. I probably will never have the opportunity to participate in a NPHA with this horse or in the future I was just curious. Hopefully I will get to go watch an event some time soon.

My horse is a good all around horse and I want to get into reining more to enhance my own riding skill than anything else. I am pretty sure my horse has a good body type for reining but I know also that his head is not ideal. He does not have a very refined head its more of a chunk nor does he have a particularly clean throat latch. If I were able to ever show him in a small local show I would be beyond thrilled.

My other older horse is very cowey and I have done cutting, team penning and ranch sorting with him. The horse I want to try reining with isn't very cowey so I don't see a future for us there.

Thanks for all the info- its good to keep dreaming!
