CWD and Leading Team of Saddle Fitters Return as Official Saddlers of Gold Coast Quarter Horse Circuit

Tampa, FL – November 6, 2015 – CWD saddles are the saddle of choice among riders competing at the highest levels of equestrian sport, including those riding on the Quarter Horse circuit.

With that in mind, the Florida Gold Coast Quarter Horse Circuit is pleased to again welcome CWD as the official English saddle of the four-day American Quarter Horse Association (AQHA) show series, to be held Dec. 28–31, 2015 at the Bob Thomas Equestrian Center within the Florida State Fairgrounds.

As a leader in the saddle industry, CWD is a dynamic brand, continually bringing innovative, never before seen ideas, concepts and products to market. The most recent of these is the revolutionary new 2GS hunter saddle, which brings CWD’s cutting 2GS technology to the hunter ring for the first time. The 2GS’s carbon fiber Kevlar composite backbone, embedded within a material devoid of structural impact, optimizes the saddle’s flexibility and resistance — just one of the many cutting-edge features of the saddle.

In addition to striving to create the highest quality products available, CWD strives to create the highest quality riding experience for both horse and rider. The company is consistently raising the bar in this area through the recruitment and training of highly skilled saddle fitters.  

Leading the CWD team on the East Coast is long-time saddle fitter Bart Kenis. Kenis brings to the company more than 20 years of valuable experience and expertise in saddle fitting, and this year he is proud to have the opportunity to again partner with the Florida Gold Coast Quarter Horse Circuit.

“The Florida Gold Coast Quarter Horse Circuit is such a well-run, top show on the AQHA circuit. We strive to cater to the needs of riders that are competing at high-level events, and these shows are a perfect fit for the CWD brand,” said Kenis. 

CWD is continually recruiting new, knowledgeable sales reps from within the equestrian industry for the opportunity to train under long-time, exceptional saddle fitters such as Kenis and to begin to learn the art of saddle fitting in order to best serve CWD customers.  

A knowledgeable sales rep will be on site at the Florida Gold Coast Quarter Horse Circuit. CWD saddles will be available to view and purchase throughout the circuit, and a saddle will be awarded to the high point working hunter horse. Learn more about CWD Sellier online at
