    Going by her build, will she suit reining?

    This is hollie, I am hoping to start some reining lessons on her when she is better but don't want to bother if its not going to be a strong point for her, if that makes sense???

    She is 14.1

    I don't think she would but I don't own any reiners, to me it looks like her front end is lower then her back end is but maybe that's how she's standing. Um she is kinda short for a reiner my friend bought 3 NRHA reiners and both measured out to be around 15'3 -16'2, not that short horses are bad I personally own acouple I say they aren't short their fun sized but that's what I think bout her would make a nice cutter with the right training!

    Her front end is shorter because she is only four, so still growing, its the other way now

    And cuttimg was definitely the next thing, nothing wrong with shorties, less far to fall I say.

    Actually you will be hard pressed to find a good reiner little lone a great reiner much over 15 hh high. Most are under 15hh mark. 15'3-16'2 would not be anywhere close to a reiner.

    As to the other horse. It is too hard to tell from those pictures. If you have any with out a saddle and standing square it would help.

    Well NRHA those horses they bought have won bought 25,000 - 30,000 each in their career and they were sticked at the auction and at home both times two of the horses had 16'2 and the other one was at 15'3 and T asked to see proff of the wins and the previous owner had copies of the check, buckles, trophys you name it she had it in her trailer(she owned all three of them)

    I would love to know their names and pedigrees. Not that a horse that tall could not rein but it is not at all the norm. I would not even look at one that tall.

    Well they didn't buy them to keep showing them they just picked em up at an auction out in billings, as the papers go I don't even know if they made them out of the truck when we got to the farm. I could ask where they are but the guys usually only keep track of their horses papers. I know that they bought 1 mare and 1 stud and a gelding will ask them to look for papers tonite and if they find em post the names in the morning

    I agree with NRHAreiner. I wouldn't even look at a horse that tall. I had a mare that was about 15.1hh maybe 15.2hh and she was a good reiner, and she could do all the manuvers. But then I got my 14hh mare and the difference is huge!! It's so much easier for my little mare to get herself turned around and roll back pretty because she's more compact.

    My trainer loves the 13.3hh stud he rides, he prefers the smaller horses.
