Freedman's Donates Personalized Saddle for UPHA Convention Auction

Freedman’s is donating a 22” World Cup Super Grip saddle to the United Professional Horsemen’s Association Live Auction to be held during their annual convention in Las Vegas, NV at the Caesar’s Palace Luxury Resort, January 3-5, 2013. 

Proprietor David Freedman set a goal to raise $5000 for the UPHA, as well as offer a one of a kind product to the public.  This saddle is the culmination of those two aspirations, as it will be a part of the auction held during the convention and is also unlike any saddle offered by Freedman’s in the past.  While the World Cup Super Grip saddle is gaining huge popularity, this particular one showcases the UPHA logo marked on both skirts.  It also has the UPHA logo embossed on its buckle flaps, making it truly one-of-a-kind.

The UPHA World Cup Super Grip saddle will be on display at the Freedman’s booth during the World’s Championship Horse Show held August 19th through the 25th in Louisville, KY.  Exhibitors are encouraged to stop by the booth to view this exclusive saddle.  In addition to donating the saddle to the UPHA Auction, Freedman’s is also contributing $50 from every saddle or show harness sale during the horse show to the Dewey Henderson Benevolent Fund Trust.  This trust is of the utmost importance to the UPHA, as it aids members and their families in times of need after death, illness, injury or natural disaster.
