Reining

okay so over the past few years I have become obsessed with reining. I might not be able to do it now but I would like to in the future. I rode a horse that had some reining training and had reining blood in him. I know some of the more basic cues (but this horse basically did it on his own lol) I could spin and sort of slide and he would switch leads for me no problem. (in case anyone wants to know his name is Tom Cat. Apparently i've heard those names are good in the reining world but like I said I don't know)

But I just want to know how one would get started in the reining world? What would I have to do first?

Find a GOOD reining trainer. One who not only has NRHA earnings but also has non pro with earnings riding with them.

I just started practicing some reining patterns with my boy, but I really don't know anything about showing or anything. Have fun =]

There are quite a few good reining trainers in NJ. The first one that comes to mind and I would love it if he was a bit closer is Rokie Dare. He is in the NRHA Hall Of Fame and he trained quite a few of the horses that a friend of mine owned over the years including the dam to my Dun It mare.

NO I do not know what he is charging now. Give him a call. Nice guy and if he is out of your range I would think he could point you in the right direction. Although a lot of times with reining trainers you get what you pay for. What he could help you with in a few months might take a year with anouther cheaper trainer.
