WPRA Saddle Rotation Contestant Saddle for 2021 NFR

Connolly Saddlery's 2021 WNFR contestant saddle was designed with purpose.  Our 2021 trophy saddle is a visual representation of Barrel racers and what it takes to be a Winner.

Turquoise letters are set on a natural foundation of deep brown roughout leather.  The double line of turquoise buckstitch represents the road barrel racers travel. Turquoise is a calm, friendly, and hopeful color, radiating the tranquility of blue, the growth of green, and the energy of yellow.

We chose this color to represent barrel racers because combining 3 colors ..running 3 barrels...highlights qualities of  NFR contestants.   Winners are confident, full of life and energy, shining bright, yet grounded and rugged. Strong in character able to withstand great tests of ability, stamina, and resolution.
