Open Reining | 223

2020 NRCHA Stallion Stakes

 

 

Not only can Cowhammer cut and hold a cow with the best of them, he commands attention in the reining too.

According to the NRCHA Rule Book, "a reined work must consist of the following: circles, lead changes and runs terminating in well-balanced stops straight to the line of travel, turns, and a back-up of a reasonable distance.

The best reined horse shall be easily guided or controlled with little or no apparent resistance.  Credit shall be given for the smoothness, finesse, attitude, quick-ness, and authority of performing various maneuvers while using controlled speed which raises the difficulty level and makes the more more exciting and pleasing to watch."
