You are not too fare from me. Let me know what you are looking for and price range and I will talk to a few people around and see what they have.

I have Driftwood mare. Also longer in back and to me she just doesn't look like reiners I've seen. But she's extremely smart and has a good work ethic (and I've heard that's pretty typical for this line). If you are not very serious into reining it very well may be a good choice. Otherwise keep looking.

Thank you. Let me start with this...I'm 63 years old...ridden for most of my life and at 49 decided to show AQHA pleasure...did that for 10 years...enjoyed every minute of it...Got dumped almost 2 years ago and bruised some bones in my back, took a long time for the pain and soreness to leave...Then had some fear of riding again...But...I have a trainer that does some reining and he had me back in the saddle before I knew it...started on riding circles and tried a few spins and I'm hooked!
So, I'm looking for an older one..doesn't matter what sex...I know how to deal with them all...Color also not important, you don't ride the color!..LOL..
Looking for something $8500 and under....I know that's not a lot for what I need but hubby said that's the limit. Guess I'd better stay there since he's buying this one...
Sorry for the novel..Just thought you might need some background on me...
Where are you located? I'm around Valparaiso, In.

Thanks! i think I've talked myself out of the colt..Don't want to do another young one...too old for that! I'm serious enough that I want to at least do the green and rookie stuff for now..Then try to move up..I have a few people looking for me so hopefully I'll find one that will work.

Yeah my driftwood is short backed and short coupled. My husband and I always joke that he would have been a better reiner than my actual reining horse. I think for $8500 you could get yourself a decent green as grass reiner. Check out this website ReinersWorld, Your Link to the World of Reining, We help Reiners Find Reiners lots of really nice horses for sale.

Goodluck on your search!

Thanks for the link...I have already been there and found 4 or 5 that is within my budget and would probably work for us...I dislike horse hunting..I want them all!

Yeah, in your situation I'd look for something older, well broke and reliable (so you could just enjoy). In any case good luck in your search! :)

I did it!!!!! I am getting my reiner...I'm getting a 2 yr old..Yeah I know I said I wouldn't but she fits the bill for what I am looking for...Don't have much info yet as papers are still with owner as I haven't paid yet for her..Going to a show tomorrow so won't get to do that til next week..But I will post pedigree and hopefully a picture of her...she looks rough after being in pasture all winter and just now having about 15 rides on her. Not pushing her for the futurities...She'll be awesome next year and we'll be a team! Old age is going to be awesome!!!
Thanks everyone for your comments and advise!!!!

Well sanity took over and I didn't get the filly...I did get a 6 yr old reiner and he is JUST what I need....Quiet, slow when I need him to be and can kick it up when needed... And I did find him on Reiners World, about 2 hours away from me...Leaving him at the place I bought him for awhile while they work on the 2 of us getting to know each other and me learning better how to ride him...I felt so confident on him...The people are just awesome and I loved the way Bob explained/worked with me on him...life gets better every day!
