Those of you who follow the barrel racing industry are certainly familiar with the Walters family name. Raylee Edwards (Walters), 2003 Canadian Champion and CPRA Cowgirl of the Year, came on board with Frontier saddles in 2007. Raylee and her sister Rana (Koopmans, also a past CPRA Cowgirl of the Year and 2010 Canadian Barrel Racing Champion) are currently both ambassadors for Pro Equine Products in Canada. Those of you that have had the opportunity to speak with either of these sisters agree they are some of the most positive, upbeat athletes in the barrel racing industry today. They are extremely approachable and always willing to lend a hand when they can. A perfect match in line with Frontier's ambassador guidelines.
We worked very closely with Raylee in 2010 to produce the "Frontier Raylee Racer" with the exact feel she was looking for. We are proud to say we have accomplished this! The New "Frontier Raylee Racer" includes features like higher profile swells, deeper seat, super round cutaway skirt and forward hung fenders. We feel Raylee and Frontier have designed a saddle together that is a leader in the barrel saddle industry with regards to feel, fit and craftsmanship. We have had some very positive feedback and results with this saddle, including NFR barrel racing qualifiers purchasing these saddles.
Raylee recently stated, "I am loving this new saddle and loving the fact that if a fellow barrel racer sits in it they love it too! The feedback has been great! The feel and fit are exactly what I was looking for and the workmanship has been appreciated by some of the best in the industry. I am just really proud of it and the people who have taken notice speak very highly of it." Page 9 of our Spring Catalogue explains all the features of the New "Frontier Raylee Racer" including the Lifetime Warranty that Frontier offers on all 15X and 20X Saddles. Watch for Raylee competing in the Canadian Professional Rodeo circuit and Barrel Racing futurities in her "Frontier Raylee Racer".
