It’s some of the best riding you’ll ever see!
Reining is a western horse riding sport competition that developed from historical traditions of herding livestock through open ranges within the Americas, Australia and Argentina, and it’s gained popularity worldwide because spectators enjoy a great show of skills as riders guide their horses through precise patterns of circles, spins, and stops.
