I do!! =D out of everything I've dabbled in (jumping, hunters, dressage, gaming, cows) reining is my favorite. My mare was had not reined in a long time when my barn got her. They almost sold her because she likes her job *to much*. Lead changes all the time, pick up speed like she is going in for a slide and tries to spin whenever she gets a chance. Needless to say NOT good for a lesson horse. I retrained her out of that and now that she is a little more savvy about when its appropriate to do these things I'll get on and let her show her stuff and keep her skills sharp.
About a year ago I found my trainer. I wish I could be more consistent with lessons but being in nursing school I don't have a boat load of money or time. I also bought a new car this summer so there goes my lessons all spring/summer and my local shows =\ I can complete/ask for/sit to all maneuvers decently but not 100% perfect/consistent yet. I'm pretty sure I wouldn't be the laughing stock of a show and I think I would have a fair chance of placing in a beginner or green class!
