There several styles and methods of equestrian training, from rodeo to trail riding to training Olympic thorough breeds for competition. You may want to take your horse for a ride, on a trail, or to the neighbors house if you live in a rural area.
You have just bought that horse you’ve always wanted, a black stag with a shiny coat. You have admired him from a distance for some time now seeing him growing up from a stud colt to a stallion, a stallion you are determined to ride. How will you decide on the best methods of training him? Do you want to him to be a trail rider, jump in shows, or be a triathlon champion? The most common methods of horse training are dressage, cutting, barrel racing, trail riding, show jumping, reining, western pleasure, and natural horse training.
Horse reining is a huge business. In 2010, for example, it made approximately $12.5 million in the United States. When you compare this figure with only $4 million made in the year 2000, you see last year’s figure reflected a 150% increase. These categories of horses are usually raised for competitions and not usually used for ranch work. They are trained from the age of six months and can tolerate a lot of physical exercises. Reining competitions involve the test of the ability of the horses to do spins, circles and stops. Both the rider and his horse are scored based on a fixed set of movements.
Most trainers decide on how to train their reining horses as there are many procedures involved. These procedures are usually easy with the correct applications. Reining is best performed by an expert trainer and as such, amateur trainers should always seek help from the experts. You need smooth riding locations and wraps for horse reining training. The smooth riding location is needed so as to prevent the horse from being injured while the wraps provide protection for the horse’s legs.
