Saddle Slingers: Behind the Jersey

Written by Kate Thayer, on June 30, 2022

With any kick-ass group there must be an accompanying kick-ass shirt (obviously). It’s for this exact reason that the Saddle Slingers needed their very own snazzy jersey. Out of this necessity, one such snazzy jersey was indeed created.

Our riders KJ and Madi had a lot of input in the design; everything from creating their tag line, “Pretty Gritty”, to the funky saddle pattern, the hint of wildflower art, and the vibrant purple colors. While most of their decisions were intentional to reflect their personality and purpose of the Saddle Slingers, some design choices were by happy accident. The purple color was picked because the Saddle Slingers liked it; just a simple pick based on their preference. Coincidentally, the jersey profits are being donated to the Saddle Slingers charity of choice which happens to be the Utah Domestic Violence Coalition (UDVC) which uses purple as its signifying color.
