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!
