Breyer® Introduces New Reining Horse Model
 for the NRHA’s 50th Anniversary

Reining is an exciting Western sport with roots on the ranch. Horse and rider pairs that compete in NRHA reining events run a pattern that is designed to show off the athletic ability of a ranch-type horse within a show arena. These patterns include both slow and fast circles, roll backs, spins, flying lead changes, and the crowd-favorite: sliding stops! Breyer’s NRHA 50th Anniversary model is appropriately shown executing this hallmark maneuver.
