    S. D. Myres Texas Cowboy Reunion Trophy Saddle. Floral carved circa 1930s trophy saddle presented at the Texas Cowboy Reunion, Stamford, Texas. Well-marked S.D. Myres, El Paso, Texas. Note: The Texas Cowboy Reunion founded in 1930 as a tribute to the Texas cowboy, is held each year for three days around July 4 in Stamford. It is a gathering of working cowhands, not professional rodeo cowboys, aimed at honoring their traditions. In February,1930, a group of thirteen Stamford businessmen met to discuss establishing some type of local celebration to counteract the Depression morale. Since Stamford was central to several large ranches, a rodeo seemed appropriate and, in order to make it unique, the founders named it the Texas Cowboy Reunion. They dedicated it to preserving the heritage of the typical West Texas cowboy. By 1937, crowds totaling 70,000 attended, with people coming from all over the Southwest. Note: S.D. Myres opened his first saddle shop in Sweetwater, Texas in 1897. In 1919 he moved his shop to El Paso where it was in continuous operation until his death in 1953.
