November 7, 2011 -- Award-winning magazine Horse&Rider recently announced the winner of the SuperMask II Anniversary Sweepstakes. The sweepstakes offered an opportunity to win a horse lover’s dream vacation in Arizona as a way to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Farnam’s SuperMask II and the 50th anniversary of Horse&Rider magazine.
Sandra Montgomery of Blairsville, Georgia, was selected as the grand prize winner of the SuperMask II Anniversary Sweepstakes. Montgomery won an all-inclusive 4-night/5-day trip to Tanque Verde Ranch in Tucson, Arizona and round-trip airfare to Tucson, Arizona. The prize also includes transportation to and from the airport, $250 in spending money and $250 worth of Farnam horse products. Montgomery will be accompanied by her husband.
A longtime subscriber to Horse&Rider magazine, Montgomery was excited to win the trip to Tanque Verde Ranch. “Once I finally realized that I had actually won this trip I couldn't stop smiling. My husband and I have always wanted to take a trip out West ever since we got married. We are thrilled and can't wait to go.”
Montgomery currently owns two horses, an American Paint Horse gelding and a Rocky Mountain Horse mare. She has been riding for three years and enjoys trail riding in her neighborhood as often as her schedule allows. At Tanque Verde Ranch, Montgomery will be able to enjoy over 60,000 acres of pristine desert landscape. She may also participate in riding lessons and try her hand at team penning on one of the ranch’s 180 horses.
"Congratulations to Sandra, our longtime Horse&Rider reader, for winning this dream vacation at Tanque Verde Guest Ranch in Tucson,” says Horse&Rider Editor and Associate Publisher Juli Thorson. “We're sure she's going to rave about it, because there's nothing like experiencing the Arizona desert landscape, horseback, while enjoying the hospitality that this great guest ranch is known for."
