Travis Tryan Joins the Cactus Saddlery Endorsee Team

Cactus Saddlery is proud to announce the addition of nine-time Wrangler National Finals Rodeo qualifier Travis Tryan to its endorsee team. Travis has come on board after a month of personal hardship and the loss of three horses, including his 20-year-old horse Walt that carried him to all of his WNFR qualifications.

“We have been following Travis’ career for many years now, along with everyone else in the industry. We have always wanted him to be a part of our team. The timing was right this year and we are excited to see where he will go from here,” said Scott Thomas, General Manager of Cactus Saddlery.

When asked why he chose to sign with Cactus Saddlery, Travis replied, “I was riding a Cactus Saddlery trophy saddle on my main horse, Walt, for four years and I want to continue to ride what Cactus makes. Cactus saddles fit my horses well, fit me well, and the quality is there. I want a custom saddle that is made to fit correctly, and Cactus Saddlery has the ability to do that.”

Travis Tryan comes from a long line of rodeo legends. He is the son of NFR roper Dennis Tryan and brother to Clay Tryan, who is the 2005 world champion. Travis rounds out the Cactus Saddlery endorsee team, which boasts over 40 world champion titles.
