YOAKUM, Texas (November 4, 2010): Circle Y Saddles, Inc., America’s Leading Saddle Brand, welcomes professional horse trainer and champion cowboy mounted shooter Dan Byrd to the Team of Champions.
Dan Byrd is a professional horse trainer and champion competitor in Cowboy Mounted Shooting. With more than 20 years professional experience in the horse training industry, he has produced winning horses in Cowboy Mounted Shooting and a variety of Western and English disciplines. He resides at his training facility in Cave Creek, Arizona.
Circle Y collaborated with Byrd following specifications for tree design and utility of his new Dan Byrd Super Shooter. It is designed for Cowboy Mounted Shooting but with a fiberglass reinforced wood tree suitable for roping, it’ll pull double duty in competition and around the ranch. The close contact skirt puts you close to the horse for precise cueing, the moderate swell and short horn stay out of the way when reaching for guns, fenders are placed for optimum mobility, and pretwisted stirrup leathers relieve joint fatigue. Matching rear cinch set is included. “My new Super Shooter was designed for the all around competitor. This saddle has the versatility to take you from the ranch to the arena,” said Dan Byrd.
“Dan adds a new dimension to our Team of Champions. With his input, we were able to create a new saddle that is suitable for multiple disciplines,” said Mark Jemelka, chief operating officer of Circle Y Saddles.
