Our reining saddles are designed to be:

  • Comfortable for both horse and rider

  • Support the rider during manoeuvres particularly the spins and the stops

  • Be a good fit on the horses back.

After many years of trialling different trees for reining saddles I believe we have developed a saddle that fits the majority of horses from 2 year olds to older horses. Our current reining tree is available in a custom option of wood/fibreglass allowing for various seat sizes and bar widths, or our popular fibreglass moulded version with a standard 16” seat and QH bars. The standard 16” tree is proving to be an excellent performer for both horse and rider.


The Standard Reiner is made with:

  • Standard 16” moulded tree

  • Top quality Herrmanne Oak or Wickett & Craig leather with three colour choices – chestnut, russet or brown

  • Quality USA veg tanned sheepskin

  • SS riggings and fittings

  • Double layered soft suede seat

  • Rough out seat jockey (good for grip)

  • Professional’s Choice girth

  • Don Orrell 6 ply Rancher stirrups (your choice of tread width)

  • Rear cinch D and jockey

  • Nylon latigos

  • This saddle is fully mounted and currently priced at $4620 inc gst.

Options are available to upgrade with silver and embossing work and high quality gloss finished Don Orrell stirrups.

Custom made trees available also.

ENDORSED BY Shaun and Hayley Saunders @ Saunders Performance Horses

"Since I started reining 15 years ago I've had the opportunity to ride in many different reining saddles made in both Australia and America. This experience combined with Ian's saddle-making experience of 25+ years, and a strong desire to build the ultimate reining saddle, has culminated in a saddle that we believe has achieved our goal.

The most important thing you need in a saddle in reining is support - you want to be free to move your legs and body and feel your horse and at the same time have support and a good seat during high speed manoeuvres particularly the spins and the stops. This saddle allows for a very close seat and close contact with your legs allowing you a lot of feel also. With the double inlay soft foam seat, you can ride in it all day and be comfortable. I have used this tree on all my horses from 2 yr olds to older 12 year olds and it is the best fitting tree across a broad range of horses I have found."
