Originating from working with cattle

Reining is a western riding competition for horses where the riders guide the horses through a precise pattern of circles, spins, and stops. All work is done at the lope (a slow, relaxed version of the horse gait more commonly known worldwide as the canter), or the gallop (the fastest of the horse gaits). Originating from working cattle, reining is often described as a Western form of dressage riding, as it requires the horse to be responsive and in tune with its rider, whose aids should not be easily seen, and judges the horse on its ability to perform a set pattern of movements.

For the forelegs, light shoes with a good grip should be used.  For this usage, all types of profiled shoes are offered (eg. St. Croix Advantage, St. Croix Eventer etc.). The shoes for the hind legs are sliding plates which, depending on the position, can be fitted with or without a rolled toe.
