Entry List Full ranking


Reining is designed to show the athletic ability of ranch-type horses in the confines of a show arena. Contestants are required to run one of 10 approved patterns, divided into seven or eight manoeuvres, including small slow circles, large fast circles, flying lead changes, 360 degree spins and what is generally considered the signature move of the reining horse, the sliding stop.

Although part of a sporting lifestyle closely linked to the spirit of the Wild West, Reining is growing in popularity around the world. Despite the seemingly relaxed attitude of both horse and rider and the loose reins typically used, Reining demands high levels of concentration and riding skills with smoothness, finesse, attitude, quickness and authority all being closely watched.

The first FEI World Reining Championship took place during the FEI World Equestrian Games™ at Jerez de la Frontera, Spain in 2002 when USA’s Shawn W Flarida became the first world champion. His compatriot Tom McCutcheon shone at the 2010 event in Kentucky, winning both individual and team gold medals on Gunners Special Nite.
