Reining Potential?

These are the most recent ones of my boy :)
4 year old QH. He has a lot of cutting in his bloodlines.
Colonial Freckles hall of famer cutting horse.
But, I prefer reining, if I'm going to pick something. He's a great all around horse. Just wanted to see if he looked like he'll do well with reining... since I've seen some posts by other people asking the same question, I thought I see what people have to say about my James. Thanks guys!

First those pictures do not show him well enough to say.

Next what level do you wish to show at. Any horse can do reining to some extent. How much training does he have and do you have a reining trainer? If not and you really want to do reining you should find one and at the very least take some lessons. Being in Ohio there are A LOT of really good reining trainers to pick from.

Well I'm not that serious about showing :] But reining is the style I like most when it comes to riding. He has had some basic training before I bought him. I just put him through some training for a month to get him soft on the bit and to work on his speed. He was a little fast, he's a lot better now and really good with leg commands. I can squeeze him to stop. Still working on neck reining and the canter needs a little more work.

I do not have a reining trainer. I live in Bethel, Ohio and if you could recommend any trainers that would be great :)
Also, what kind of pictures do you need to be able to tell? Lol
Are there any good reining trainers in MO? I'm planning to move there next spring. St. Louis area. Thanks!

Most reiners do not use the leg cues or "spur stops" for a cue to stop.

It would be nice if we coud see pictures of him unsaddled, squared up on flat ground, from both sides and from behind/in front of him so we can see his conformation.

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

he is a very pretty gelding! I would take him to a local reining trainer and have them evaluate him.

More and more of the cutting and working cow bred horses are starting to show up in the reining ring. I agree that you should find a trainer, if your just looking to have some fun and play around in the sport, you and your horse should be fine. I've seen some reining bred horses that just hated to rein, but excelled in other events and I've seen some horses that you'd think would never make a reiner and they've knocked the ball out of the park, so to speak. A good coach will be able to tell you within a few lessons if your horse has natural reining talent.
