    I switched because my grandfather past away and left me his farm and his QH stallion and 4 brood mares and 2 finished cutters. That's why I switched. I don't think I could have won with my old gelding at that level. Not at NCHA that's for sure! But I wasnt talking about that level because you never stated what level you were talking about in the first place. I know I was winning at the level I was showing at...and yes...with a non QH (gasp)

That's all I own now. But I am a strong beleiver in other breeds being able to keep up. But please don't discurage any one from using any thing but a QH in cutting. That's what happened to me...i got made fun of at shows because I was ridding a 16H arab cross...and kickign all there buts! But they got to me...i own all QH now..and im doing just as well now in the cutting world as I did with my old horse...
    Um, it's in the second sentence...

    I have no idea why you don't see me mentioning the NCHA maybe you keep skipping over it? And I don't doubt you won at that level with a non QH lots of people do. Theres lots of Minor Leauge baseball players that doesn't mean they can make it in the Major Leauges.

    Let's try to remember the topic guys and respond to that.

    This wasnt meant to be a controversial thread and I would really like it to stay that way. I had a bad experience. I believe my horse can be trained TO A DEGREE to do reining. I also said I never wanted to go to futurities or anything therefore I don't need him to be the best at it. I will also be continuing dressage and jumpign training with him. I just want someone to try and train him to do reining. I don't care if it doesnt happen my whole point was the way I was treated. This seems to be missed over and over again. I don't care if someone tries and finds he doesnt respond well or is crap at it.

    Do any of you know what its like to innocently ring a trainer and end up feeling like you want to burst into tears because of the way you were treated??? I can handle hearing no but I can't handle being told im stupid blah blah regardless of what the trainer thinks of the situation there is absolutely no excuse for treating someone the way they treated me.

    When I started this thread I was hurt and disillusioned with the western world as this was my introduction to it. I meant no offence to western trainers in general and certainly didnt want people arguing over it. My experience was awful until I found someone (actually 3 reputable trainers) who were happy to take the challenge and that changed my views. There is nothing for people to defend. I spoke only of the trainers I had encountered

    Thanks for everyones replies. Lets let sleeping dogs lie

    Any horse can be trained to do anything it just takes a big person to take on the job and break the mold. It is the first time I have heard of anyone doing reining with Wb but y not they r just as able to do it as the rest and if you got really serious and showed him in it that would be awsome to watch specially cause your breaking that sterotype . . My friend has a arabian stallion she reins on and we live in a a QH/Paint domainted area and its great to watch her kick but and take names at the shows with him good luck.. hope everything goes well

    Your welcome I heard once that you can have a horse with alot of athletic ability but if thy don't love the job you have them doing it isnt worth it but you can have a horse with a lot of heart and lack luster athletic abilty but if they love their job they will give you thier all. So I see nothing wrong with trying something new with your WB it will an expereincefor the 3 of you and you can always take what you learn on to your next horse... I played around with reining on my appy when he was 18-20 years and never competed in it but took what I learned and am using it on completeing my barrel horse I have now it has helped a ton
