Reining competitions are very popular in the United States. Reining may be performed by any horse, but the American Quarter Horse in particular dominates the field. The reining horse must be agile, quick, and very responsive to the rider’s commands. Powerful hindquarters are required to hold position in a sliding stop or a rollback, and excellent coordination is required for proper spins and flying lead changes. Correct leg conformation is essential, as the limbs and joints are often under considerable stress in competition. The horse must also have an excellent temperament to perform with both speed and precision.
