The name “Lynn McKenzie” has been prominent in barrel racing since 1977 along with her great horse, Magnolia
Missile. She and Missile won the World Champion Barrel Racing title at the NFR in 1978 and 1981. Today she lives in Lindale,
Texas, with her husband, Murray. They train barrel horses and are nationally and internationally known for their success in
helping barrel racers young and old. For 30 years, they have been doing barrel racing clinics and developing the LM Barrel
Racing line of saddles and bits.
Lynn has joined Bayou West to develop the Lynn McKenzie Barrel Racing Pad. This pad was designed with the barrel racer in mind.
“This is by far and away the BEST pad I have ever used!” Along with the cut-out D, the rider feels closer to their horse. It was
designed for use with my Lynn McKenzie saddles but it also works great with other saddles. It is made with Bayou West’s top
quality wool felt and neoprene in-set. The contoured design features high quality leather to strengthen the withers and the back.
The top grade leather is also used on the wear leathers to give you a lasting product. It is like a custom made pad that form
fits to your horse. It allows the horse’s shoulder blades to run up under the bars of the saddle. This freedom of movement gives
you longer strides that mean faster horses!!!
