Shelby Bates


Shelby Bates

Shelby Bates is from Loomis, CA, is 23 years old and has been competing for 19 years.

She is a WPRA Barrel Racer that has goals of winning the RFD-TV’s The American Rodeo, qualifying to the 2022 California Circuit Finals and to the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo.

Shelby is a 2x American Qualifier, California Circuit Finals Qualifier, PRCA rodeo winner, as well as multiple 1D barrel racing winnings.

She has three horses that she is competing on this year across the nation, and absolutely loves her SaddleRight saddle pads. Shelby has had problems with saddles rolling with previous pads even though her saddles fit her horses correctly.

Once she started using SaddleRight pads, the rolling has stopped and her saddle stays exactly where she placed it when she cinched up. There is no more constant un cinching and re cinching while moving the pad to where it should sit on her horse. Her horses do not have any back soreness, and the pad stays up off their shoulders allowing them to have free range of motion. These pads are a big part of why her horses are competing at the top of their game.
