Columbus, MT – Owner of Mesa Bucking Bulls and PBR stock contractor, Mesa Pate, has teamed up with Montana Silversmiths, the world’s leading western buckle and jewelry maker, as celebrity endorsee and brand ambassador. Pate began Mesa Bucking Bulls in 2009, bursting onto the Built Ford Tough Series scene in 2010 as her bull named Highway 12 was nominated for PBR Bucking Bull of the Year.
“Mesa is an inspiration to us and to this business. She has accomplished so much in such a short life span, and turned her passion into her living at the highest level.” says Steve Miller, Vice President of Events for Montana Silversmiths. “She represents what’s right with America and mirrors our Montana lifestyle. We are thrilled to have her on our team.”
In her role as an endorsee of Montana Silversmiths, Pate will represent Montana Silversmiths while on contracting bulls during the PBR Built Ford Tough Series and at select Montana Silversmiths events. The two will also partner in social media and national advertising campaigns.
“Having been raised in Montana, I grew up with Montana Silversmiths,” said Pate. “It’s an honor to represent a brand that stands for tradition and quality.”
Pate is scheduled to visit the Montana Silversmiths headquarters during the Stanley Tools & Security Invitational in Billing, Montana May 4-6, 2012. Pate will be at Shipton’s Big R West on May 5 from 12-1 p.m. for an autograph session.
