This course is made up of spins, change of foot, roll-backs, sliding-stops, and backslides. The most famous event in the United States => Futurity! Very promising young horses.
- The spin
The spin is a rapid pirouette on the hips, or a rapid pivot on several turns to the right or to the left. Figure very complex to achieve, start in front of the judges, finish in front of the judges as straight as possible...
- The change of foot
The change of foot takes place in the middle of the career by changing direction. As you know, the horse gallops on one foot to the right while making a circle to the right and vice versa (anterior and posterior further forward.) It tests the horse`s balance. The judges note the discretion of the rider`s helpers (valid for all figures), and the execution made by the horse.
- The roll-back
The roll-back is a very fast half-turn on the hips with an immediate start at a gallop if possible on the right foot. It is generally preceded by a sliding-stop.
- The sliding-stop
The sliding-stop is a stop slipped over several meters. You must first start a good gallop. The judges note the straightest and most parallel possible route as well as the position of the horse and the action of the rider. Very impressive and much appreciated figure!
CUTTINGCutting is a test taking place with cows. So you need a very well trained horse. The horse must prevent the calf or cow from joining the herd behind it. And a superb work is then established by the horse itself, the rider simply hangs on.
France is unfortunately a little weak on this kind of discipline because obviously it is very difficult to have cows at home ... Nevertheless here is 1 address where you can find some if you feel like it.
THE PLEASUREThe Pleasure is a very complex event due to its technique. It takes a lot of work. To obtain a very good result, you are a winner by choosing a horse descended from a good line of pleasure.
The pleasure is a test judging all the gaits of the horse and the most discreet aids of the rider. Everything is in the gathering which will give the impetus to your horse and obtain very rhythmic and very slow gaits. You have the impression that your horse is treading water.
THE TRAILThe trail is a course made up of various obstacles such as bars on the ground or even raised, doors, cans, boards, obstacles that you could find on a walk ...
The goal is to overcome all these obstacles according to the rules imposed on them. each route. The horse must be very manoeuvrable, very mobile and must respond calmly with discreet aids. He will be required to perform side steps, "L" backsliding, pivoting on the forelegs or hindquarters, a whole bunch of manoeuvres in order to prove the horse`s good training.
BARREL RACINGBarrel Racing is a timed speed test around a "clover" made up of cans. It is loved by all people in general, as the speed of the horses is impressive, and the event in itself fun. However, it requires a lot of effort from the horse, and a very good attitude from the rider !! The work of a Barrel horse is special because we ask the horse to wrap itself around the container at very high speed, it must be flexible and under orders. The reins are closed and not independent, short. In the United States, this ordeal is mainly passed by women.

RR Star - Reining StallionChampion Reining Stallion, RR Star. RR Star is the NRHA Futurity and NRHA Derby Champion, as well as the highest money earning reining stallion of all time.
RR Star is a 1998 Sorrel Overo Paint stallion with a flaxen mane and tail. He is owned by Richard and Rose Lundin of Lundin Farms.
This superstar athlete began his show career with Andrea Fappani in 2001. That year RR Star made history when he won the NRHA Open Futurity out of 445 entries-making him the only paint horse to ever do so. RR Star and Andrea also won the second go of the NRHA Futurity as well. All in all, the duo earned over $151,800 during the 2001 Futurity.
In 2002, RR Star returned to the show pen, making both the National Reining Breeders Cup Finals and NRHA Derby Finals with Andrea. Then in 2003, RR Star continued his illustrious career with Todd Bergen, making the NRBC finals yet again.
However, it was at the 2003 NRHA Derby in Oklahoma that RR Star again made history-this time with another history maker in the saddle. After only 3 weeks together, NRHA million dollar trainer Tim McQuay rode RR Star to the NRHA Derby Championship. This made RR Star the only horse to ever win both the NRHA Open Futurity and the NRHA Open Derby Championships. The Derby win also added another $50,000 to RR Star`s earnings. With over $222,750 in lifetime earnings, RR Star is now the all time highest money earning Paint horse in the NRHA, and the highest money earning stallion in the NRHA.
RR Star was bred by Richard and Rose Lundin of Lundin Farm. Lundin Farm is located in Del Norte, Colorado.
