Endorsed by more million-dollar riders than any other saddle, Bob’s Custom Saddle is the premier saddle for reining, ranch riding and cow horse disciplines, and more.
“I trust Lindsay and Jess with everything to do with my horses. I was tired of my ankles getting cranked by my fenders and I don’t like the rigging on my current saddle. My new saddle has everything I wanted, exactly the way I wanted and will be awesome for when we take our filly to the futurity!” ~ Stacey
Are you tired of being sore because your saddle wasn’t made with your height, shape, and body position in mind?
The saddle is the most important piece of equipment you put on your horse. In other words, if you want to enhance your ride, start with the saddle.
With a Bob’s Custom Saddle, you can feel good knowing that your saddle fits your horse and you!
When you have a saddle that actually fits you and your horse, you’ll get an enhanced ride from day one. Plus, you’ll be sitting in a beautifully hand-made saddle that will last through the years.
The quality of the leather and the tooling of a Bob’s saddle is unmatched. You’ll be hard-pressed to find another saddle that stands the test of time the way a Bob’s does.
At Hayes Cofell Performance Horses, we have work saddles that we use for multiple horses every day that are twenty-plus years old and still in great shape.
If you’re new to Bob’s, here’s a bit about these well-known saddle makers in their own words:
“Bob’s Custom Saddles has been making the finest custom western saddles in the world since 1977. All Bob’s Custom Saddles are hand-crafted by lifelong artisan saddle makers who have been honing their craft for generations.
We hand-tool every saddle, hand-lay every ground seat, hand-stitch every seat and hand-craft each cantle to ensure each Bob’s Custom Saddle meets the high design and construction standards our customers demand. Each saddle is hand-inspected to meet and exceed its specific custom order. “
“Bob’s fit our horses the best. They put the rider in the best position to get out of the horse’s way which helps ENHANCE your riding.”

I never would have ordered a custom saddle without the help of Lindsay and Jess. I just wouldn’t have known what to order.
I’m SO glad I did! It helps my riding and I know Bucky is more comfortable without me constantly pulling my saddle back over to the right! Plus, I love it. I didn’t know you could love an inanimate object so much!
I always wanted a Bob’s. I visited the head office in Arizona in 2017 and hoped one day I would have one. I have researched a lot of high-end saddles and I don’t believe you can find the quality of the craftsmanship and the variety of custom options in any other saddle maker.
This is a dream come true for me. I love it more every time I ride in it. I can feel that it’s changing the way I ride my stops and turns. I just love riding in it!

“We have ridden in a lot of saddles on a lot of horses and it has always come back to Bob’s.”
custom reining saddles
Heck yes, you can! We’ll get your inseam so we can have the fenders custom cut to match your leg length so that you’re riding in the middle hole. We can also look at fender shape to decide what will meet your needs the best. Short-legged people generally like the KR or the Fort Worth fender. We can also make changes to the rigging to reduce the bulk under your leg.
Yes, if you have a model in mind or you have a photo of a saddle that you like, we can custom match or change the specs. A great place to look is on Bob’s website under the saddles catalog or on Bobs Instagram page for inspiration.
Yes! The best thing to do is to get the serial number, it’s stamped under the fender. Then we can pull a spec sheet for that saddle and make sure we order the same tree that you already know fits your horse.
Yes! You can order custom headstalls, breastcollars, back cinches or spur straps to match your existing Bob’s saddle or a new one you’re ordering at any time. Most of the options for these are not available on the Bob’s website so send us a message directly and we’ll get you the options!
The best option is always to ride in one. If you can’t ride in one, we can take photos of your horse’s back to send to the tree specialist at Bob’s.
