YOAKUM, Texas (June 4, 2010): Circle Y Saddles, America’s Leading Saddle Brand, is proud to team up once again with John Wayne Enterprises to create the John Wayne Signature Saddle line.
The four-saddle collection is inspired by American legend John Wayne and hand crafted in the buckaroo style. They are built tough and crafted to outlast the rigors of daily use. Three saddle designs are built with a Kevlar® reinforced wood tree which carries a lifetime warranty and are suitable for heavy ranch work including roping. One saddle design features a Flex2® tree for lighter weight and is ideal for trail or recreational riding. Each saddle has premium features which include beautifully hand tooled and finished leather, genuine wool skin skirt lining, and engraved hardware. Matching headstall, martingale style breast collar, and wool felt saddle pad are available.
In 2007, Circle Y Saddles created the Courage saddle to honor Wayne’s historic 100th birthday. The limited edition saddle was inspired by a saddle Wayne used in several movies. The original saddle is on display in the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City.
“All of the employees of Circle Y Saddles felt extremely privileged to be a part of the making of the ‘Courage’ Saddle. We feel this Signature Series saddle project will be just as rewarding,”
said Mark Jemelka, chief operating officer of Circle Y Saddles.
