Sponsoring Our Way To Paradise

26 Jul 2015 12:06 PM - Aux Venture Awards Highest Scoring Lady Rider At Paradise Lagoons 2015
Aux Venture has welcomed the opportunity to return to Paradise Lagoons to once again support rural women through our Highest Scoring Lady Rider Award in the 2015 Greenup Eidsvold Station Stockman's Challenge. With the 2014 Paradise Lagoons Campdraft cancelled due to the tragic passing of it's founding father Graeme Acton, we were please to see all our friends, clients and campdraft enthusiasts return to this annual landmark event.

For those that have not witnessed a Stockman's Challenge event, the riders must guide their five year old or younger horses through a pattern of manoeuvres, known as the dry work, before undertaking a campdraft run, known as the wet work, to complete their aggregate score. Paradise Lagoons also usually adds a third element of a Cutting competition to make this event one of the most elite Challenges in Australia. Sadly, the Cutting leg was eliminated in 2015 due to lack of cattle numbers from the prevailing dry conditions in Queensland.

Our congratulations go to a worthy winner in Felicity Burton riding her own mare JR Elsola Rey. The 5 year old mare by RS Chisum (IMP) was purchased by Felicity at a Landmark Performance Horse Sale as a 3 year old and at the start of this years Paradise competition, Felicity remarked that the mare was one of the most exciting horses she had had the pleasure of riding. She certainly didn't let her owner down at this event. 

2015 saw more lady riders in the Challenge competition than ever before. It is fantastic to see more women enjoying the benefits of this great event and we are proud to be sponsors of an award that recognises their contribution. 

Aux Venture would like to thank the Paradise Lagoons Committee and Rick & Alice Greenup of Greenup Eidsvold Station for the opportunity to partner on another fantastic week in Paradise.

Aux Venture looks forward to being a part of it all again in 2016.
