Im not sure exactly how to explain reining, its like showing how well your horse is trained, how responsive it is and how in tune it is with its rider. Horse should be able to be guided with close to no resistance in the pattern. Pretty much anything the rider asks for the horse should be able to do.
What kind of horse is he? Any horse can do reining but not a competitive level. Reining is a good base training for any horse in my opinion. But depending on the breed of horse you own, you may or may not be able to be at a competitive level. How tall is your horse also?
