Reining Essentials by Sandy Collier


Reining Essentials: How to Excel in Western's Hottest Sport by Sandy Collier is the indispensable guide of progressive training exercises for the reining horse.

Whether green, broke, or "push-button," every horse will perform more willingly, cleanly, and quickly with work on what she calls the "Seven Essentials” the foundational basics every riding horse needs. Like no other book out there, Collier breaks down the maneuvers required in a reining pattern and the tricks and techniques for introducing them, perfecting them, and showing them off in competition.

You'll learn about:

  • Collection and steering, condensing your horse's frame and getting his feet to follow his nose
  • Lead departures, circles, and spins, preparing for the lope, hunting the circle, and driving into the spin
  • Stops, back-ups, and rollbacks perfecting the slide, moving backward with cadence, and swinging round 180 degrees over the hocks
  • Lead changes: getting it right and preventing anticipation

"You'll want to have your highlighter with you when you read [this book]. You can go chapter by chapter, and when you're done, start over again and advance yourself and your horse even further on subsequent reads. As you acquire more knowledge and ability, you'll get more out of this book each time you read it because it's deep." from the Foreword by Al Dunning, World Champion Quarter Horse trainer and rider.

Written with Jennifer Forsberg Meyer.

240 pp., 8 ½in x 11in, 175 color photos, 25 illustrations.
