NRHA, from what I researched myself, has excellent beginner friendly options for the first time/new Reiner.

Awesome! This guy actually started off in Dressage apparently. He was really nice over the phone and seemed to feel like I will enjoy this. We talked a long time. I'm really excited!

I wished I had reining trainers close to me...

I can travel I guess But I'm not the type of person that feels comfortable keeping a horse with a pro 24/7 then riding my horse 2-4 times a month and then in the show pen for the win...

I know lots of people do it and I have nothing against it... But I want more out of the experience than that!

Lopin, can you get a horse you can maintain at home and trailer out a couple times a month for lessons?

That's going to be my plan. I might do the yearly 30-90 day tune up. But of course, first I must get some training under my belt before I even look for a horse!

I'm excited to hear how it goes!! I have to get back into lessons again. I stopped in september because my bank account took a nose dive from school (love when school sends me a bill for 1/3 my yearly income!). Now that I'm a back on my feet and I've been busy every weekend. Maybe next weekend... :(

I've looked into this and I feel that May be my best bet.

My son is only 10 months old but next year my mother AND mother in law will both be retired which will in turn free up a lot of time for myself. Until then I'm just looking around and pricing things up.

The lesson was a blast! I'm going to do it again next week. I rode a cute little roan. He was very small, like 14.2 and his trot was insanely bouncy but since reiners don't trot anyway apparently, it didn't matter. It was really cool. I spun in both directions and even did the sliding stop! The hardest part was the stopping because my horse has the spur stop so I kept using my spurs to stop instead of go but we'll get there....

It was SOOOOOOOOOOOO FUN!
