Let It Rein

In this two disc training series you will discover how reining becomes more than a's a way to train all horses to be more responsive, better connected to you as the rider, and have a lighter feel with ore confidence and mental focus, The techniques for teaching reining discipline can be applied on the trail, on a cow, around a barrel, performing ranch pleasure at championship levels, having more fun with cowboy dressage, or negotiating your way through a jump course. The ability to willingly guide your horse with no resistance will propel your efforts to another level of partnership. If you've been wondering what's next, here it is.


Ranch Riding

The Ranch Riding horse should reflect the versatility, attitude and movement of a working horse. The horse's performance should stimulate a horse outside the confines of an arena and that of a working ranch horse.

Forward working speed, control and light contact are evaluated as well as overall manners while performing the maneuver requirements and the quality of movement. Our Ranch Riding DVD teaches the requirements and skill that you and your horse will need in order to compete in the exciting new discipline of Ranch Riding.

Dynamic Saddles, Designed by a Champion,
for You and the Horses you Ride

Based on his experience as a horse trainer, and a showman, Craig has designed an incredible saddle system that is comfortable for the horse AND the rider, light weight without sacrificing quality, and able to stand up to a hard day of work, and still stand out in the show pen.

Craig’s signature saddle has unique a tree that gently slopes from a narrow swell, to the center of the saddle. The tall cantle provides a secure seat during stops without restricting other reining and ranch riding movements. The stirrups are hung under the rider’s knees, allowing a full forward swinging action. In-skirt, stainless, dropped dee rigging eliminates bulk under the fenders. Take one of Craig’s saddles right from his own tack room, or have one made just for you with your favorite details, like tooling, color, and custom bling.

Craig has 3 Saddle Designs

The Craig Johnson Performflex Reiner

Manufactured in Texas, this saddle has the lines of a traditional reining saddle and the most current details that technology has to offer in fit and comfort for the horse and riders. This saddle has slight flexibility both front to back, and side-to-side, and a close contact fit and feel. Craig’s custom rubberized tree allows for maximum athleticism for your horse, by providing excellent support without getting in the way of the shoulders, blocking the horse’s ribs from flexing, or feeling stiff when the horse lifts his back, and curls his loins for a big stop.

The Craig Johnson Performflex Ranch Rider

The Ranch Rider has all the same features of Craig’s Signature Reining Saddles, but with the silhouette of today's ranch versatility saddles. The horn is just the right height to catch a dally for a clean log drag, but not get in the way of steering. The swells keep a rider in the perfect position for a +1 extended jog, and the seat pocket holds a rider just right for smooth transitions or to work a cow, but without holding a rider so snug that lead changes and lateral maneuvers are hard to ride. This is the saddle that Craig loves to ride all day, every day.

The Maverick

It Looks like A Ranch Versatility Show Saddle, has the sporty feel of a reining saddle, AND has a solid tree that can hold whatever you dally. The Maverick has all the features of Craig’s Ranch Rider, but it is built on his custom hard tree. The Maverick made in Texas by Martin Saddlery.
