Competition Footing Management


Kiser Arena Specialists got its start in 1988 as the Show Footing Manager for the National Reining Horse Association. As a third generation farmer and trail blazer in the farming industry, Bob Kiser took on the footing as a new challenge building arena drags from farm implements and each year fine tuning the equipment and science behind the footing. In 2011, Bob was inducted into the NRHA Hall of Fame as a result of his incredible contribution to the sport of reining.
