"hot" reiners are a pain in the butt! I trained them for years and still do my own, and I spend a LOT of time trying to prevent hot (which is just anticipation, usually).

It always aggrivated me when people say sliding horse "pulls itseld along with it's front feet." huh? lol. and I also love the fact that people thing we just jerk and spur our horses into submission. we'd blow them up if we did that! And get called for blood! geez. I never had too many WP people look down their nose at us reiners, but also didn't go to many shows that were anything BUT reiners. I know we can get as bad rep for taking over the warm-up pen though.... WP riders beware, when they announce fencing time, go take a break! lol

you've got a great point there. most of us could ride a reiner in the WP, huntseat, trail, horsemanship, whatever... and do well! but how many of those pleasure/all-around horses could do a competitive reining pattern?

The things I could say... geez well to make a point I know a barrel racer and she starts all her colts with the fundamentals of reining then starts them on barrels. They end up being wicked racers and can do other events to succesfully.

I have heard comments from A-Z about reining and all other events. Its not even ignorance anymore it's just disrespect. =(

Live to ride. Ride to live.
