    Do you feel the rein industry is growing? Brings in new people?

    Obviously I am NRCHA even though one trainer thinks I should show my gelding NRHA, but I am curious do to limited experience. Do you feel the reining industry is growing and bringing in outsiders? One of my friends put her horse in NRHA and went to a green as grass competition and was turned off. She said no "new groups" and "odd man out." She gave up for now and moved to barrels.

    NRCHA I am new too. A few friendly welcoming people, not a ton. Of course I need to work my way in a get to know more people. This takes time. However, I showed twice in non pro limited and rookie. For three years running back points for rookie (six plus shows a year) I am ninth out of 40.... HUH... I showed twice in one year! The statistics show not growing there. Plus the people I did compete against where unfortunately very talented teens with show parents, a couple newbies (wonder if they will be back), and people just borrowing a normal show persons horse.

    I think that reining is growing where I am……and I have found them very welcoming to newbies. They have rookie days every year, with clinics, and those are great! Guess it depends on where you are.

    I think NRCHA is growing more slowly-there is not a ton of people that do it here.

    The reining industry is definitely growing.

    Most people in it are very kind and out going. This includes the highest levels of trainers.

    We are very fortunate to have a local reining club with 6 shows a year less than an hour from my barn. My daughter went into it last year with a horse that knew what she needed to know, but really not knowing anything about what she was doing. The club was wonderful in welcoming her, and my husband and I, and in giving her help, encouragement, and friendship. This club's mission is to give new reiners the start they need. I definitely think it's growing because their biggest classes are their beginner classes.

    I am trying to find a reining trainer who will give me lessons and work with me and my gelding. I have wanted to learn this sport since forever. I just wish I could find a trainer by me!

    Supposedly it is the fastest growing western discipline.

    This info is very encouraging! Awesome to hear! My "friend" bought a new NRHA horse and new go around. Me: I sold my reiner and bought a more cutting breed NRCHA horse but she takes a liking to rein too so we shall see. Post was older and I am more positive. I have a new trainer that is super good and supportive... plus met new people on journey similar to mine FOUR people. We kind of clanned together as MN isn't so beginner friendly politically and trainer had long reassuring talk as he worked in Texas apprenticing for a while and said plan is to get MN up in newbies. Guess I found a home and plan to sting along the newbies as same place and know what they are in for. Hopefully together we can gain a good working and encouraging atmosphere

    My talk with my trainer was more "private" but he had deep concerns and posting here no fault... as doubt many if any local NRCHA people read. Horse market has dropped and though maybe in bad place. Hang on and appreciate those trainers you guys have!!!!! Me it doesn't matter because I was lucky enough to manage to find a trainer that understands sport needs newbies who takes my pain in the ass seriously and I help him as unvenounced to me many people have latched on. When he private said new trainers bring new people I titled head unsure.... but he unlock old school money pros used as still needed supplimental income (new people) throws more stock into to new people. The difference shines.... I used the "pros" since in kid on the block... switched to him some pros and people that seemed to give high stock in my love of his training... much to chagrin jumped ship to him... interesting. And ME I never dis trainer another uses... no plan to have people switch.. .

    In end I learned smart young trainer cause he was 100% correct new trainer caused increase in sport. I hope the pros give him credit but doubtful.

    Roux-start going to the shows, since there are few in the directory (and I know there are more out there). That will also let you see how they are with the horses. Watch the warm ups as well as the classes. Talk to people, etc…..that is the best way I know of to find someone. Start networking.

    The UK has a reining team and there's an FEI European Championship so the sport's spreading worldwide which is bound to increase popularity
