Talking Learning to rein!!!!

Hey y'all! I'm in Ohio, and really want to learn reining. I've been riding Western my whole life, but no particular discipline. So I called my uncle up 2 weeks ago, who breeds, trains, and shows reining horses, and asked if I could go and learn reining with him for a few weeks over the summer. He said absolutely!!!!, so next summer I'm going to learn reining on my uncle's ranch in Colorado! I am SO excited lol. Here's their website:

Any tips on preparing for reining? I'm pretty advanced in riding and like to be challenged, but my paso fino gelding is 20 years old and can't do anything that rigorous. Any preparing tips? (sooo excited lol!)

What part of Ohio are you in? Ohio has more reining shows and NRHA affiliates then just about any other area. There are quite a few top reining trainers in Ohio and many others of all levels. I would say find a someone who reins or a trainer and see about a few lessons on a finished horse. That is the best way to start.

Yes, see if you can ride a finished horse. Let him teach you =]

Me and my horse are learning pole bending and barrel racing together, but he is young, so he can handle it, lol.

He has a ton of horses....arabs & QH's. A bunch of finished horses I can learn on, so that shouldn't be a problem. I can't get lessons here...(we're in Medina, OH by the way) so what types of excersices can I do on my paso fino? He's not a reining horse, but he's gaited and pretty athletic, muscled, and looks like a 3-yr old. So what type of preparing excersices can I do on him?
