Billy Cook Saddles "Milennium Reiner"
Reining Saddles:Billy Cook SaddlesReining is the fastest growing sport in the Equine Industry. Reining is a judged competition designed to show the athletic ability of a ranch type horse in the confines of a show arena. There are ten NRHA approved patterns containing required maneuvers, including small slow circles, large fast circles, flying lead changes, roll backs over the hocks, 360 degree spins, and the very exciting sliding stops.
In reining all horses are created equal as they all begin the competition with a score of 70. The horse can either plus or minus 1/2 to 1 1/2 points on each maneuver in the reining pattern. The above statement is the basis of all scoring with credit being given for smoothness, finesse, attitude, quickness and authority of performing various maneuver, while using controlled speed, which raises the degree of difficulty. Penalties of 0 to 5 points also accrue for incorrect maneuvres, and going off pattern will result in the dreaded Zero.
Another way all horses are created equal in reining is that reining horses can be any breed, sex, color or size and are not required by the NRHA to be registered with a breed association. The only requirement is that each horse has a competition license that is issued by the NRHA before it can compete in an NRHA Approved Event.
In 1998 Reining became the sixth discipline approved by the United States Equestrian Team. In 1999 Reining made its debut at the Bayer/USET Festival of Champions, the first time a western discipline has been included as a competitive equestrian sport. Whizard Jac, owned by Bill and Dawn Pohl, & rider Mike Flarida made history by winning the $100,00 Cosequin/USET Reining, becoming the first horse and rider team to win a gold medal in reining. The next goal is to be approved as an Olympic Event.
