You have to love the sport of reining, but you also have to admit that it is all sort of a blur when those little horses pick up the tempo. During the spin and slide I always wish I could see their legs and hooves. Good luck with that!
There's no doubt these horses get a workout in the biomechanics department so when I saw that Russell Guire of Centaur Biomechanics had videotaped a reiner with his high-speed video camera, I knew it would be worth watching in slo-mo.
So let's toast the beginning of the big weekend for the sport of reining...

Russell Guire of Centaur Biomechanics captured a reining horse with his 300-frames-per-second high-speed video camera, for some high-quality slow motion. It's 25 times faster than the human eye.
