Thank you, you said it better than I did haha.

Hi Gidji, I think StylishK and nrhareiner answered your question very well, thanks guys.

I see you are also in Australia! If you want to learn more about reining in Australia you can visit: We are located in QLD and yes my parter David Manchon is the trainer at Flex.

If you are also a Queenslander you can visit: to find out when the next Reining event is on. We would love to have you come along, you could watch riders working in the 'open pen' and 'pre-works' and I can gaurantee you won't see a horse run in to a fence!

Hey guys, thanks! I was watching it on youtube the other day and got interested in the training behind it. Someday I want to take a few lessons in reining to try and advance my seat!
Thanks again for the info!
