Greenville, TX (March 3, 2010) – Cactus Saddlery is proud to announce the release of the National Barrel Horse Association branded barrel racing saddle. In 2008, Cactus Saddlery became the Official Saddle of the NBHA and began designing the NBHA saddle to suit the needs of every barrel racer.
Scott Thomas, General Manager of Cactus Saddlery, said, “The NBHA Barrel Racer took a year to design and develop. Our goal was to design a saddle that would give the rider proper positioning while fitting the horse correctly. We designed a tree that allows the saddle to sit low on the horse, with bars that flare out and contour to the horse’s back to eliminate unwanted pressure and provide excellent communication between horse and rider. The fenders are set forward to help maintain the rider’s center balance and allow for full range of motion during a run.”
“Cactus has developed a line of high-end products available for purchase that are geared directly to the needs of barrel racers. What an exciting opportunity for NBHA members, especially directors who are looking for award items. We are proud to be associated with Cactus Saddlery, a company known for quality and durability,” said Sherry Fulmer, Executive Director of the NBHA.
The Cactus NBHA Barrel Racer features hand tooled Hermann Oak Leather, in-skirt rigging, stainless steel stirrups, custom NBHA conchos, and embossed NBHA logos. The NBHA saddles can be ordered in three tooling amounts and weigh approximately 29 pounds.
