South Texas Reining Horse Association Saddle Series
Update for the 2020 Saddle Series - Because of reduced levels in STRHA sponsorships and donations/fundraisers brought about by this crazy pandemic, we will not be able to award saddles for the 2020 Saddles Series.
We are fortunate, however, to be able to award two Travis Stillson Headstalls in place of the saddles. For those unaware of Travis Stillson's artistry and exceptional leather craftsmanship, be sure to check out his facebook page!
