Reining is an American riding discipline. The term, translated from English, means "work of reins" and among its origins from the work with cattle done by cowboys who used horses to gather, move and contain herds of cattle in the vast prairies. Over the years, cowboys, proud of their well-trained horses and ready for work, began competing in a series of maneuvers, including sliding stops ('stop slipping') and spins ('twirls'). These performances formed the foundation of the eponymous sport.

The Reining is now an equestrian discipline that has a prominent position in the international riding: in arenas around the world are held Reining races in which they challenge hundreds of horses and riders, of every technical level.

Reining is often referred to as the dressage of western mounts. The dressage-Reining approach derives from the fact that both disciplines are based on mandatory movements (figure-maneuvers) to be performed in a certain order (dressage shooting - pattern)They are evaluated by judges who assign the scores to the individual maneuvers and to the set of figures.

The modern Reining requires that all the "go" (so it is called the show of a combination) is harmoniously connected and that in the succession of the different maneuvers there are unpleasant and prolonged hesitations or abrupt interventions on the horse. The "drawing" drawn by the pair on the race bottom must be symmetrical and free of burrs.

The reins are used imperceptibly and only by placing them on the neck: there must be no contact with the horse’s mouth, which must be absolutely free. Orders from the rider are communicated mainly by trim and leg.

It is also imperative to get a good score, that the horse is willing, cheerful and serene, the gluing brought in attitude totalment
