About the Show

In this monthly episode, we take you behind the scenes of reining. Known for its precision, elegance, and athleticism, reining is one of the fastest-growing sports in the Western industry. We will talk to champions of major events, learn about different ways to be involved, and hear about the incredible equine athletes that inspire.


The National Reining Horse Association promotes the reining horse worldwide and advances the finest traditions of western horsemanship, and we are thrilled to take you on the journey with us.
