The Bob Loomis Reiner is the result of years of experience in the Reining Horse Industry producing one of the top Reining Saddles in use today. Bob requires special features in a Reining Saddle, including an Armor-Tex special Reiner tree, hand stamped basket tooling, unique three-way rawhide and leather rigging for close contact with the horse, a narrow, comfortable seat and “leg channels” from the seat to the fenders This is a great saddle designed by one of the best in the business.

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.
