Read an Excerpt

from the chapter titled “Pattern Strategy”Putting maneuvers together in a smooth, precise and correct pattern is the ultimate goal in reining. When you walk into the arena to show what you’ve got to the judge, all your time, training and efforts are on the line. This is what you’ve worked so hard for. But things happen so fast that you don’t have time to think about anything except your next maneuver. This is when all your preparation comes into play, and you execute your game plan. And, believe us, you need a game plan. There’s an old saying that goes, “If you fail to plan, you plan to fail.” We never enter any show, anywhere, without planning a strategy for success. Even if we’ve been to the same showgrounds many times and have run the patterns hundreds of times, we still strategize our every move before we enter the show pen.In this chapter, we’ll tear down the parts of a standard NRHA pattern and give you tips and some training techniques on how to handle the maneuvers, plus troubleshoot any common problem areas. It all begins with your entry into the pen. According to the official NRHA patterns, there are walk-in and run-in patterns, and how you approach either sets the tone for your entire run.
