NRHA to Offer "Ride a Reiner" at WEG

With reining being a part of the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games this fall in Lexington, Ky., the National Reining Horse Association (NRHA) will give equestrians the opportunity to "Ride a Reiner." "Ride a Reiner" will be held throughout the games, Sept. 25-Oct. 10, in the John Deere Reining Arena.

In an area just inside the main entry, NRHA will offer "Ride a Reiner" test rides to WEG spectators. For those with some riding experience, ""Ride a Reiner" will give them the opportunity to enjoy a spin or even a sliding stop on a well-trained reining horse. The American Quarter Horse Association (AQHA) will offer breed test rides as well.

The rides will be conducted inside an MD Barns open-sided arena. The arena will be constructed on what is now a parking lot at the Kentucky Horse Park. The arena base and special reining surface will be brought in by Kiser Arena Specialists and maintained by John Deere. The arena will also play host to demonstrations from NRHA and AQHA professionals on reining horses, as well as American Quarter Horse riders from other disciplines.

More details on "Ride a Reiner" will be available at NRHA.com in the coming weeks.
