Chesterfield, MO (PRWEB) June 22, 2011
Last year, Manna Pro Products, LLC ran a sweepstakes promotion called “Saddle Up For Summer.” In the program, consumers collected game pieces with sets of letters on them, hoping to collect unique pieces marked with “SAD,” “DLE” and “UP.” Once they had collected all three games pieces to spell SADDLE, consumers could submit the game pieces for a chance to win $2,000 toward the saddle of their choice.
Over 500 horse lovers entered the Saddle Up For Summer sweepstakes, and the winners have just been announced. They are:
- Raymond M. Watts from Macon, Georgia
- Aimee Sue Baxter from Lafayette, Indiana
- Owen L. Bailey from Farmland, Indiana
All three winners were thrilled to win such a substantial prize simply for using Manna Pro products they already know and trust. Perhaps no one was more grateful than Aimee Baxter, who has dedicated her life to rescuing horses that are abused or neglected.
“I’ve never won anything before,” says Baxter, “so when they told me I won, I started crying and said, ‘are you sure this is real?’” Baxter currently has nine horses on her property, known as Stormy Acres Farm, and also takes care of her ailing mother, a disabled daughter, and several other young relatives. She used the $2,000 to purchase two saddles, which her daughter and a niece are already using, and used the left-over money to make improvements to fences on the farm. Currently, Baxter uses her own money to buy horses from neglectful owners, and then has to pay the expenses of caring for and feeding them. “What I really want to do is open a non-profit dude ranch where we can help more horses,” she says.
“Our whole life is built around these horses,” Baxter says. “Every year, we ride our horses to the community parade, and then ride in the parade as a family. This year, more of us will be able to ride because we have more saddles. It means so much to our family to win this prize.”
