Vale - Graeme Acton
Our hearts go out to the Acton family on the passing of Graeme. He was such a lovely man and so passionate about life, family and his horses. Graeme was always so generous with his time and very encouraging. He will be sadly missed.
Congratulations to Susan Salmond, the lucky winner of the 2013 saddle from Blue Creek Saddles.
“Dear Ian & Sue
Just a short not to thank you once again for your generous donation of the saddle to Paradise Lagoons. I rode in the saddle for only 4 days before I went to a Challenge/Campdraft last weekend and I am proud to say I think “I did your saddle proud”. I did not plan to ride in it at the Capella Challenge weekend because as it is my first fender I felt I may not feel right but it was great, although I think it is a bit bit big for me, and with the help of your lovely saddle I went on to win the ‘Rookie Series Challenge’ for 2013. Boy I was stoked.
Yours truly, Susan Salmond.”
Each year, Blue Creek Custom Saddles sponsors the Ladies Draft at Paradise Lagoons with a fabulous hand made saddle. Every lady who competes on the day goes into the draw to win, so EVERYONE has a chance to win it!
Many thanks to Shane Webke for presenting our 2011 saddle!
The model of the saddle for the 2012 draft was the ‘Statesman Campdrafter’.
