  1. Reining
    Ive always wanted to do reining and just try new things but the only problem is that the area I live in doesn’t have very many western trainers and the ones that there are (like mine) just do WP and ranch riding and trail. But, I am DYING to try something new. So if anyone knows any trainers...

    Hello everyone ! I recently bought a beautiful appaloosa foal, who will be home in less than 2 months now. He really is a sweetheart, he has a really gentle and calm personality, and is absolutly gorgeous (he is going to be rather tall). He happens to have a great lineage in western pleasure...
  3. Reining
    My gelding likes to dive when we transition into our small slow. I don't want to get after him as speed control is something he's just starting to nail consistently. My usual go to is to D him across or, if he's diving badly, I'll stop and do a single spin to the outside but I'm.worried about...

    hello, I recently purchased my horse and wanted to get back into western riding, either to improve his balance or start showing. when i've ridden western it was mainly trailing but have had a go at barrel racing and a tiny bit of pole bending, now with my horse I want to find what is best for...
  5. Reining
    Hi there! I'm an avid reader that has been pushed to the point of necessity. There are hardly any contemporary fiction books that revolve around reining or western sports in general-- it's always english or working ranch's-- and I'd like to change that. While I've never had the chance to get...

    Who has some input on Jim Taylor saddles? What exactly is the "shoulder free tree" that they advertise?

    Hi! I have a tiny reining bred AQHA mare that I am looking for a saddle for. She is pretty short backed and I find its hard to find anything with a shorter skirt- I am open to cutting, reining, cow horse or even roping saddles for her! There is not a lot of info on these saddles and how they...
  8. Reining
    I've been riding for years but have just now gotten into training and showing reining. We're going to our first big show this up coming weekend (13Sept19 to 15Sept19) and have run into a startling question where we can't seem to find the answer. I noticed in a previous feed there was a mention...

    So i'm stuck in a bit of a ruck. I have been offered a working position at a barn In Texas BUT i'm currently in California. I want to go so bad but that means leaving in a week. I would have no friends or family over there. I am very close to all of my friends and spend my majority of my time...

    What is the groups general consensus on show span (like lifespan but for showing) for reining horses? I'm interested in a 14 year old that has been owned and trained (as a 2 thru 5 year old) professional NRHA trainer. I have bought from him before (15 years ago) and he is a great trainer...
  11. Horse Breeding
    Hello Friends, I would love some help and suggestions for weaning my 4 month old a filly. I really don't want to separate them b/c they are so sweet together, but I understand I should do it by 5-6 months. Any suggestions on how to do it would be greatly appreciated.
  12. Cutting and Team Penning
    I am switching from what I call my "foo foo show pony" life (I showed the all around at QH and APHA shows) to the ranch horse events. I am not going to make showing my priority. I just want a good using horse I can have fun with and learn some new "tricks" in my old age (I'm in my 50's). I would...

    I need some help and or suggestions. I'm having a specific problem, but it's hard for me to communicate exactly what the problem is in words- because I feel it may be muscle related and I can't quite pinpoint where the weakness is...so bear with me, please. And ask as many questions as you need...

  16. Horse Breeding
    I've ventured this subject before, but now that I know I will be breeding my mare I am getting more serious about the stallion. My mare, Shine and Spin, (aka Jazzy) is NRHA registered, she is also very cowy. I have heard the Shining Sparks babies are really doing well in the Reining Cow horse...
  17. General Riding queries
    So, I am heading off to college in the near future, and I hope to try out for the IHSA western team if I get into my top college (the only one I'm looking at with a western team) However, there is a slight issue. I have never been able to afford to show nor have my own horse. By the time I am...
  18. Reining
    So I moved this post from Horse Health to reining b/c the vet ruled out lameness. (http://www.horseforum.com/horse-health/reining-horse-kicking-out-when-he-474586/page4/) My gut always felt like it was my horse, Gunny, yanking my chain anyway. I have had my horses with two different top...
  19. Horse Health
    My horse, Gunny (sun of Gunner) is having issues lately. When I go to stop him he is kicking out with one or both hind legs. How I can explain it is... that it's almost like he is landing after a jump on both front legs, kicks out and then tucks his butt under him. A kick out in the reining...

    I have a burning question question for you guys. My "arena" is really just the pasture I turn out my horses in. I can't till it up and make a dirt arena, and I don't have room to build one. What are some exercises I can do with him (reining) to practice without him slipping?? Besides the...
