Rodeo Athletes are American Icons

This handmade, hand-tooled custom saddle was built by Connolly Saddlery to honor our country, our western heritage, our barrel racers and all that is great about America.

The red and blue WPRA emblem, accentuated by eagle feathers that outline the saddle is symbolic of the strongest and bravest. Our national icon, the American eagle, known for its grace and beauty can soar to heights unknown.  Its acute vision and laser focus allow it to change course in an instant yet keep its primary goal in sight and the driving motivation.  Rodeo athletes parallel a similar journey.  The Top 15 courageously navigated 2020 with incredible boldness and determination both in the arena and in life.  Connolly Saddlery designed this saddle to honor their attitude and effort as rodeo athletes, icons representing the American spirit.
