Reining Camp

Weekly camp information will be posted closer to Summer Camp
Come and experience what Reining is all about! During this intense* week of riding, we will introduce you to and/or help you with the maneuvers unique to Reining. Softness, body control, and precision are important to performing a good reining pattern. Throughout this week of camp, we will give you the foundational tools that will help build those very things in both you and your horse. Speeding up or slowing down your circles, smoothing out your spins, and setting your horse up for a successful stop are just some of the things that will be covered in your classes.





*Riders must be able to lope/canter confidently and continuously for many circles with control.

(Horsemanship application required). You must fill out both a registration form and this application to register.

Your 3 hours of Instructional horse time will include:

  • Intro to Reining and the Theory behind it
  • Basic body control of the horse – moving the shoulder and hips
  • Fundamentals that go into building a sliding stop
  • Turnarounds/Spins – Correct body position before speed
  • Lead Changes – The body control necessary for good changes
  • Ground classes that will cover tack use, creating a freestyle reining pattern and many other topics

You will also get to experience some of the other activities of camp:
