Product description

Brimming with expertise and insider information for one of the most popular competitions in Western riding, this definitive reining manual takes aspiring horseback riders through the initial steps-- choosing a horse and perfecting the required maneuvers--all the way to becoming a confident competitor. What originated among cowboys working ranch cattle has clearly turned into one of the hottest disciplines in the Western tradition, with the National Reining Horse Association experiencing a dramatic 40 percent increase in membership over the past 10 years. From one of the top competitors and trainers in the sport, this essential guide contains the best methods for producing well-trained horses who can stop, spin, accelerate, and accept the riders every cue.
