Champion Mounted Shooter Kenda Lenseigne joins Circle Y Team of Champions

Yoakum, TX (March 18, 2009)- Circle Y Saddles, America’s Leading Saddle Brand, is proud to add champion Cowboy Mounted Shooter, Kenda Lenseigne, to its Team Of Champions. As the 2007 & 2008 Reserve World Champion Cowgirl for the Cowboy Mounted Shooting Association (CMSA), Kenda brings to Circle Y expertise and a competitive edge in this fast growing sport.

Kenda, who splits time between her ranches in Washington and Arizona, has lead the women’s and open events in the relatively new sport of mounted shooting. A background in training cutting horses led to further success training shooting horses, though learning gun handling required more practice. In mounted shooting competitors must negotiate an arena course while riding at full speed using two single action cowboy guns loaded with black powder blanks to take out balloon targets set in various patterns.

&n bsp;

As holder of four CMSA World Records, Kenda has definitely found her game. She is also four-time CMSA World Point Champion. She currently trains horses and riders for mounted shooting while teaching clinics and competing in over 30 events across the country.

Circle Y benefits from Kenda’s insight when designing her special shooting saddle. “Circle Y has listened to the needs of our shooting competitors and has designed a saddle with these features,” said Kenda. “It will definitely help many riders improve their skills.” The Circle Y Flex2® tree conforms to the horse and allows for freedom of movement. The saddle’s light weight and shock absorbing skirt further help horses perform at their best. A roughout seat jockey and fender, and a suede seat, help hold the rider’s position. The adjustable stirrup leather position strap determines the amount of leg swing the rider prefers. The swell of the saddle is low and the forward tilted horn allows for maximum clearance for the two guns and holsters which20riders carry. A complete line of Circle Y Shooting Saddles will soon be added to the Circle Y line of quality saddles and tack.

“Circle Y is honored to have Kenda on our Team of Champions,” said Mark Jemelka, General Manager of Circle Y Saddles. “She represents the best in this unique sport of mounted shooting and Circle Y is lucky to have her.”

Circle Y saddles and tack are sold through a network of authorized Circle Y dealers. For a list of dealers or to ask for a free Circle Y catalog, visit http://www.circley.com
