    I already can't wait for my next lesson. At 50 bucks a lesson I can only do one a week.

    I wonder if when I buy a horse and put it in training if the lessons will be part of it?

    I need new tack too!

    I'm working with my little roan with reining as a goal. When we went to look at him my trainer shook her head and said "yup, typical cow pony, all lope" basically a nice way of saying his trot is HORRIBLE. Good thing he's a nice loper. Lol

    An excuse to buy new tack, what a shame! What do you need to buy? My current plan is to have a couple of lessons and clinics on Gibbs, maybe Emmy next year! Oh and have some lessons on a proper reiner just for the sheer fun of it.

    apparently I need a new saddle. I used the trainers wife's saddle for my lesson. It's deeper I guess? I'm going to try my textan at the next lesson because I need shorter stirrups.

    We should shop tack! The lesson was neat... flying lead changes were so easy on this horse. Of course he is trained...

    My trainer had a textan. Amazing saddle! And it actually fit my short little legs!

    I bought a finished Reiner for $6500. He's freaking awesome, lazy as all get out and only had a few quirks he needed fixed. The original asking price was 12K (dies) but after years of no one buying him he dropped the price. It's really all about where you are. I see reiners on craigslist for about 8-10 around here.

    Enjoy every minute of it! Have fun!:)

    Sorry to be a little late on this, anyway, SO glad you had fun! My trainer did include one lesson a week with the training fee….on my horse. When I rode theirs it was more. As far as take-you will find that different trainers have different "favored" brands. Some are Jim Taylor fans, some Bobs, and some are other makes(Leddy, Ryon, Continental…). For starting out, I had a Rocking R reiner I bought used. Loved that saddle. Upgraded to a Textan and HATED it. So did my horse. Then upgraded to a used Bob's-LOVE it. Love the deep pocket and the narrow twist for ladies available on some models. I am also addicted to Balding Bits and Yucca Flats saddle blankets.

    WHere did you decide to go? I am back in Va for the bulk of the winter…..hmmmmm….

    I think it was that first one I PMed you. The one you liked... It was like 45 minutes from me. I really enjoyed it. I was supposed to go back this weekend but he had a castration that had issues so he was tied up. If the weather is good, I'll try to go this weekend.

    I can't remember the brand of saddle they used.... I was looking at some and the prices very so much... it's crazy!

    Yes, prices do vary, as does quality. I would suggest waiting just a bit to see what you like, and if you stay with this trainer, they may know of some for sale privately and save you $$. I know mine was a wheeler dealer sort and got me deals on bits at least-1/2 price and barely used, and when they start around $500……that helps. THey may also be able to steer you to where to buy and have connections. Have fun!
