This thread has been quite entertaining and I'm excited to have the webcast links, too! It's been a decade since I worked for Tom McCutcheon, but I'll never forget the exhilaration of a quality spin or sliding stop on a naturally talented, well-bred horse. Smart Starbuck was the first "real" reiner I had the chance to ride - I was grinning like a fool after experiencing his smooth, effortless movements (even without spurs, lol.)

If you go to the web page of the NRBC, you can see the class schedule-it started today, with some of the prelims. As is typical, later in the week the "big" boys come play.

I made it!
Headed to Sundre for my nephew's birthday and got all side tracked! LOL

The biggest problem I had with training Arabians for reining was the anticipation of a move. They're big thinkers and quite a few tried to anticipate what I was going to ask, whether it was a spin, roll back, lead change, etc and would jump into it without waiting for cues - pain the arse if I wasn't going to ask for something! LOL

I made a "shut down" cue for them. Touch the base of their neck to get them to relax just to stop their minds for a minute and seemed to help them re-focus on the present and not what might be happening.

The gelding I really wanted to show this year I ended up having to sell after my accident so I could my truck and so now I'll just be focusing on my boys. Hopefully Reed heals up and is showable, and Khade I'm waiting until he's 5-6 until we start reining training - They're slower maturing and we don't have the huge AQHA Futurity issues. Lol
I like Emmy (of course!) and I think her conformation wouldn't hinder her in reining. She's got a lovely set of hocks on her.

Here's a couple of reining stallions that I really like:

Al Marah Matt Dillon:



Hesa Zee:



Crown Musc:



TA Mozart:



TW Marshall:



And attached is Kordelas.

Not familiar with Arabians but I learned this cue when riding cutting horses to tell them when to quit a cow. Sure does come in handy!

Yes, did it for that, too!
And it's subtle enough that you can do anywhere and no one really knows what you're doing. LOL

Isn't he a hunk?!
She is expecting a few foals from him this year and I'm crossing my fingers that she has a filly for me.
Hoping to breed to TA Mozart next year, and I'm working on buying Marshall - We'll see how that goes!
