Reining

Non-Olympic discipline

Reining is a sport designed to show the athletic ability of a western type of horse in a show arena. In reining, competitors are required to run one of several approved patterns; each pattern includes small slow circles, large fast circles, flying lead changes, roll backs, 360 degree spins, back ups and exciting sliding stops that are the hallmark of the reining horse.
