When a well-bred and flashy reiner walks into the reining pen, the judges can’t help but perk up and wonder, “Can that horse do what it looks like it can do?” These reining sires can certainly do that and much more with athleticism, heart, good conformation and the ability to pass all of these qualities on to their offspring. 

These statistics, powered by the American Quarter Horse Association’s QData, were compiled from January 1 to December 31, 2020. The figures represent offspring earnings, number of money earners, average earnings and each sire’s leading money earner for 2020.

Here are the top reining sires of 2020 who are passing on their superior pedigree:
