Shawn Flarida and Craig Schmersal are two of the most successful trainers and showmen in the sport of reining. Each is a member of the National Reining Horse Association's Million Dollar Rider Club, an elite group of competitors who've won in excess of that amount in NRHA-sanctioned competition. Between them the men have won every national and international event possible.

They've pooled their extensive expertise and collective knowledge on the pages of this book to present the complete training program that catapulted them to reining stardom. Chapters cover selecting and maintaining a reining horse, tack and equipment, training philosophies, basic foundation principles and exercises and training techniques for all the individual reining maneuvers. The collaboration also includes their successful approach to show preparation and strategies for putting together winning reining patterns.

World Class Reining covers the entire spectrum of training and showing a reining horse and is lavishly illustrated throughout with four-color photography that gives it a ?coffee table? book feel and look.
