Qualifier Saddle 


Drawn by: Amberleigh Moore

Donated by: Rodeo For A Reason
Manufactured by: G7 Saddles

Saddle Information:
This year’s Rodeo For A Reason sponsored saddle is a custom Bullseye made by Ely Ganzer in Denton, Texas. The Bullseye stacks the cards in a rider’s favor by helping us keep our feet to keep our seat. The lily design was chosen because of its unique beauty and symbolic biblical meaning as flowers that “render it a very conspicuous and showy object, which would naturally attract the attention of the hearers". That’s our goal with the #saddleadaygiveaways each night at The Plaza Hotel Rodeo For A Reason viewing party. This will be the second year that RFAR and it’s sponsors will give away ten saddles in ten days. This year, we’ve added an eleventh saddle for online viewers and two saddles in the Miss Rodeo For A Reason pageant.

Qualifier Saddle

Donated by: Usher Brand Saddles
Manufactured by: Usher Brand Saddles
usherbrandsaddles.com

Saddle Information:

The Usher Brand Barrel saddle is built on the custom Usher Brand tree, which was designed by Clell Usher & Joan Usher. Clell is an equine chiropractor who has worked for numerous prestigious clients, including the United States Equestrian Team. Joan is a renowned professional barrel racer who is not only a 2002 Olympic Winter Game Qualifier, but also a winter tour finale qualifier, has won several futurity and derby championships, and is a 7 time Canadian finals rodeo qualifier. They have used their combined knowledge to create a tree that is beneficial for both horse and rider. 

This 2018 WNFR Contestant saddle is built on our 6.5" Semi-QH tree, which fits a vast majority of horses. It's made using high quality Wickett & Craig leather, in a rich chocolate color and features a gorgeous hand-tooled rose pattern, turquoise buckstitch and a stunning Caiman seat in black/turquoise. This saddle showcases many of our popular design features, such as our 2" rise, the pencil roll cantle and our forward hung fenders that are tethered. The 2" rise at the front of the seat combined with the pencil roll cantle gives the rider a nice, deep pocket seat while the fenders being tethered keeps the rider in the correct position through an entire ride.

Qualifier Saddle 


Drawn by: Taci Bettis

Donated by: Danyelle Campbell
Manufactured by: Danyelle Campbell Saddlery

danyellecampbell.com

Saddle Information:

1. High quality tree that would fit the wide variety of horses. Lewis Saddle Tree company helped create my tree with shoulder flare and a bar angle that sits down properly on the horses back while distributing pressure evenly.
2. Great fit for the rider, one that allows you to sit down on your pockets. My fenders hang directly under my hips, where I believe they need to be for proper balance and performance while training and competing. 
3. High quality and long lasting saddle. From my tree to the riggin dees, no corners have been cut.  Every saddle comes standard with Kerry Kelley custom hardware, top quality leather, 100% sheepskin liner AND Don Orrell Wood stirrups. 
4. Unique and different look.  Custom tooling (on tooled saddles) for each saddle that is unlike anything I’ve seen on a barrel saddle yet.
