Agreed! I've been riding for 6 years and stuck to English (hunter/jumper) the whole time. I still am going to, as my horse isn't a reiner, let alone been ridden western! The reining mare I'm learning on is much, much more advanced than I am, so it should be fun bringing western and reining in the mix. I feel that I have a solid foundation in my riding - six years of hunt seat - so that should give me a good basic foundation in reining as well.

I'm getting into reining:) I've been kinda a late bloomer into the whole bigger show area, but I think waiting was probably best. I got to have a lot of experiences with horses that I would have missed being showing all the time...

I started doing it in foundation shows with my older mare, but since reining comes right before speed events, she is very set that reining is in fact a speed event without poles or barrels. She is a BOMB on her lead changes from a fast circle to a fast circle.:) She is 21, acts like a 3 year jacked up on mountain dew XD You would never guess in her younger days she spent 2 years with a pro trainer. Picture is of her asleep in halter...since she is going to fast in reining to get pictures XD

Dusty is currently in reining training. He is progressing soo fast and my trainer is absolutely in love with him. He always says "this is not a good horse, this is a GREAT horse." Not too bad for a horse that I got for free. I love this little guy, he has been a slow grower, but he has a big heart. He is super athletic, tries his hardest and gets his little ole butt under him better than most I'm just soo proud of my little man <3

Then there is the gelding I might be buying, Playboy as I call him now(: He is 10. Haven't brought him home yet, but I am seeing big things for our future and I am extremely excited:)
