Unless a horse has huge confirmation flaws, they should be able to hold their own in whatever discipline you ask of them. Right now mine are doing dressage, hunter and WP. And, they do them very well! I say do it and have some fun...

Thanks! My guy is pretty versatile, so I'd like to give him a go at a few things, and just have fun. It's more about the horse than it is me

WP is judged on movement. Not many reiners have the movement that is necessary to be a successful WP horse.

People whose horses are excelling in all these different disciplines, at what level are you competing?

My mare showed on the Arabian circuit, so it's a bit different, but she competed in reining at the national level. Unfortunately my uncle and aunt took the focus off of showing (dealing more with breeding at the time) for the few years she was in WP training, and she came to me shortly thereafter, but I plan on showing her in both WP and reining on the Arab circuit in the future.

I didn't think the OP was talking about showing more than locally, which is why I pointed out that an adjustable horse that could go through the paces in frame would most likely do well at the local level over a horse with less training but better movement.

I don't mean to be offensive, but Arabian reining classes are a huge difference from the stock horse reining classes.

Not at all offended, I know there's a huge difference. She's also shown NRHA, though I'm not sure at what level.

Haha ok, I'm confused....regardless of the confusion I'm going to practice a few things with my guy and see how I do. I'm thinking the super slow jog is going to be a challenge, and the lope will be slightly less of a challenge. Thanks for all your replies.

I personally love the Novak Equestrian Series on Youtube. She trains this WP horses very sensibly.

She just encourages the horse to move naturally by softening the poll and allowing the horse to come back into the collection.
