What about you? I wanna see some of your reining horses :)
I rode in reining events back in the early 60s, before the NRHA was founded. What we did was very similar, just not as aggressive. (Pivots instead of spins, not as many slides, etc)
Lots of fun and quite a rush when your horse really does it well...
My main horse (now) is a very accomplished reiner but we don't do too much of it these days. Mainly trail rides. He likes this life just fine... Posted via Mobile Device
