Centennial Saddle Raffle
To celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Ellensburg Rodeo, the Ellensburg Rodeo Hall of Fame Museum (ERHOF) sponsored master saddle maker Janneman A. Pienaar’s construction of a swell fork “Ellensburg Tree” saddle replica. This style of saddle was invented in Ellensburg and was pivotal as the late nineteenth century cattle frontier transitioned into the modern world of professional rodeo.
To win the “Ellensburg Tree” swell fork saddle replica, send a check or money order for $100 to ERHOF, ATT: Saddle Raffle, 110 W. 6th Avenue, PMB 116, Ellensburg, WA, 98926, or email ERHOF97@gmail.com, or call 509.968 5019.
