The USAE Reining Seat Medal is part of the historical Federation Medal Equitation program. The Reining Seat Medal combines the customary reining maneuvers with equitation to create a picture of complete horsemanship. The USAE Reining Seat Medal class is open to junior exhibitor and amateur riders showing any breed of horse. Qualifying classes may be held at USA Equestrian competitions as well as non-member competitions such as the Intercollegiate Horse Show Association (IHSA), National Reining Horse Association (NRHA) and American Quarter Horse Association (AQHA) shows.

USA Equestrian Inc., as the National Equestrian Federation of the U.S., is the regulatory body for the Olympic and World Championship sports of dressage, driving, endurance, eventing, reining, show jumping, and vaulting, as well as 19 other breeds and disciplines of equestrian competition. As
the country's largest multi-breed organization, the Federation has over 80,000 members and recognizes more than 2,800 competitions nationwide each year. It governs all aspects of competition, including educating and licensing all judges, stewards, and technical delegates who officiate at these shows.
The vision of USA Equestrian is to provide leadership for equestrian sport in the United States of America, promoting the pursuit of excellence from the grass roots to the Olympic Games, based on a foundation of fair, safe competition and the welfare of its horses, and embracing this vision, to be the best national equestrian federation in the world.
