Ive competed in reining for years, spending a lot of those years in the country's top 20 and I wouldnt change a thing about it. There are things I dont agree with in the disciple, but you're going to find that in any aspect of this sport. But reining as a whole, I think it makes up great and very useful horses. I just wish I wasnt so hard on the horse's legs. I would however, change western pleasure do to the fact there is nothing natural about it. reining, however, you can take just about any reining horse and compete at a high level of dressage. They are just that broke. Its not for everyone, but I dont see how someone couldnt get addicted to it!!
