Rebekah Lou Taylor of Pardeeville, Wisconsin, was the lucky winner of the Horse&Rider 50th Anniversary Saddle Sweepstakes. To learn more about Rebekah, visit Editor Juli Thorson's Horse Talk blog.
Here is an excerpt from that blog:
Rebekah is a retired, disabled Marine who's been riding for a few months. I wish I could be there to see her face when she opens the big shipping box that's coming her way from our editorial offices in Boulder, Colorado.
Inside, she will find a custom-designed, silver-loaded trophy saddle from Cactus Saddlery. It's been on display at our editorial offices in Boulder, Colorado, and we've all coveted it. The folks at Cactus outdid themselves!
