Saddle Horn Ashtray Unvieled by Locals.

Riding a horse can be a lot of fun, as well as a rewarding experience. For those who ride frequently, riding a horse shouldn't interfere with day-to-day habits. That's where Rhonda N. and her friend Joy M. may soon be able to help horse riders. Rhonda rides her horses often and she also smokes cigarettes. She needed a place to put her cigarettes when she was finished with them. Along with Joy M. she created the saddle horn ashtray. "I can talk about the reasons why both Joy M. and I invented the saddle horn ashtray," Rhonda said. The device gives users a place to extinguish and contain cigarettes while riding a horse. The saddle horn ashtray eliminates the chances of starting a fire and also reduces the damage done to the environment. "I've ridden horses for many years, both for work and pleasure," Mrs. N said. "I've always been aware of the fire hazards of smoking on the trail.

I used to tie a tin can to my saddle horn to extinguish cigarettes, which could have been very dangerous if you would have, for some reason, gone over that horn." "I've thought about the ashtray for years," she added. "So along with the great help of my best friend Joy, and Invent Tech, we are about to introduce the saddle horn ashtray." This original idea is now being made available for licensing to manufacturers interested in new product development, especially in the tobacco products industry. Mrs. M and Mrs. N hope to have the saddle horn ashtray in full production and available to the public within the near future. "It will not hinder the horse's movement," Mrs. N said. "We simply have made it safe to ride and smoke without any danger to our environment. Let's all keep our state, and the world, safe and fun. That's our goal."
