How do you teach a horse to rein?

I've never ridden Western and have no intention currently of learning/teaching how to rein but it has always intrigued me as to how it is taught. Obviously it would be a reasonably complex thing to do but can anyone sort of give me a brief outline of how its done? Like those sliding stop things?

I just can't work out in my head how its done. Its not the quality of the stops because riding English you can have very good, responsive stops without the sort of hindquarter under sliding.

Also, can any horse learn into or is it an intuitive thing for purpose bred horses?

Trained
The sliding stop is one bred into the horse but it is also the way the horse is trained to drive under himself with each stride. Each stride get deeper and deeper under the horse until you ask for the stop. This is why you see the horse gaining speed. This puts the horse into the proper position to stop. They are also taught to keep the front end up and moving while the back end sits and slide. Again this is more bred into the horses then taught but you can get a horse to do a small sliding stop if you work at it enough. However in the end you might end up hurting your horse.
