"Gaining acceptance as the first western discipline of the United States Equestrian Team (USET) in 1998 marked an important milestone in the history of reining, the western horse, and NRHA. In 2000, the Federation Equestre International (FEI) accepted reining for international competition, and reining was approved as the first western discipline to be inducted into the World Equestrian Games in 2002."
