Reining requires the rider and the horse to have a strong relationship. The horse must be responsive and in tune with the rider and very often this discipline is described as the Western form of dressage riding. It is a competition where the animal goes through a pattern of circles, spins, and stops.
The horse must show strong attitude and to be guided willingly. If he displays resistance or poor attitude, he’ll be judged accordingly. In this video, you’ll see an extraordinary reining performance done by Cira Baeck and her talented horse, Colonel’s Shinning Gun.
This rider is famous for her reining work and together with her American Quarter horse she has won many competitions. The pair had their golden period from 2013 to 2014 and broke many records.
This video was filmed while they were performing at the NRHA Derby Open Level 4 and it was a winning performance. They managed to gain a score of 229.5, showing how talented and athletic they are. Enjoy the video and go riding!
