reining maneuvers with equitation to create a picture of complete
horsemanship. The USAE Reining Seat Medal class is open to junior
exhibitor and amateur riders showing any breed of horse. Qualifying
classes may be held at USA Equestrian competitions as well as
non-member competitions such as the Intercollegiate Horse Show
Association (IHSA), National Reining Horse Association (NRHA)
and American Quarter Horse Association (AQHA) shows.
