Reining lessons Iowa City/Cedar Rapids IA area?

Hi All,

Anyone know of any barns that offer beginner lessons in reining and/or other western disciplines like penning/sorting/cutting? I’ve always wanted to try either avenues and am finally ready to start looking into it. Anywhere near the Iowa City or Cedar Rapids, IA area would be great.

I’ve ridden English only in the past (hunt seat and then dressage), so I’d want a barn that works with beginners because frankly I’m totally new to western and don’t want any assumptions on my part. I also don’t have my own horse, so they have to have lessons horses available.

If anyone has any ideas, I’d really appreciate the information! Thank you.
