1 year with Arenus
Max Tallone began his reining career in 2005 with Arcese Quarter Horses in his native Italy. After many successes there, he decided that, in order to further develop his skills, a move to the United States was warranted. Since 2008, Max has had the opportunity to work with many industry leaders and has made a name for himself within the reining world. He is well known for his training abilities and his horses have consistently placed in the highest rankings at the NRHA Futurity Prospect Sale. In 2013, Max not only had the highest selling horse at the sale but the highest selling horse in the sale’s prestigious history.
Max, and his wife, Amanda, operate Tallone Reining Horses in Whitesboro, Texas where his focus continues to be on developing young horses, showing, sales and working closely with his non pro clientele.

"One of our horses had extremely poor hoof quality. He was so thin soled that he struggled with lameness issues and required Soft-Ride boots and stall rest to remain comfortable. Once starting him on Assure Hoof, we saw improvement right away. Within a short period, his hooves had improved to the point he was able to go back into training and even compete. Without Assure Hoof, I don’t think we would’ve gotten this horse back!"
