Craig Johnson has carved a niche among today's top Reiners as a "Champion of Champions". He has designed his saddle from the ground up with a unique tree that gently slopes from a narrow swell to the forward center of the saddle. The tall cantle provides a secure seat during stops without restricting other Reining movements. The stirrups are hung under the rider's knees allowing a full forward swinging action.
The Craig Johnson Reiner features a hand stamped waffle tooling with roughout jockey and fenders, silver engraved conchos with Fururity tips.
