The Beaudesert Cutting and Western Performance Club has enlisted a world renowned cutting trainer to help add to funds raised by the club on Pink and Blue day.

The annual Pink and Blue event was held on October 8 at the Sue West Memorial Arena on Josephville Road to raise funds for the Cancer Council’s research into both men’s and women’s cancers. 

Ray Drought, past president of the club, said eight people had been glad to pay $175 for the training day with Graham Amos on November 18 to supplement the club’s donation to the Cancer Council.

He said Mr Amos was one of the best trainers in the world and his clinics were very popular.

“It would normally cost $1500 a day for a riding spot—  he’s a master horseman and his knowledge is second to none but he’s agreed to come and donate his services.

“Neville Brooke will be donating the cattle for the day so apart from $200 we spent on advertising, all the money will go to the Cancer Council, not just the profits.”

Mr Drought said they had set an eight rider limit so there were no more places available for the cutting school but they were still selling ‘fence sitter’ tickets at $30 for people who wanted to attend as observers.

The Beaudesert Cutting and Western Club’s cutting school fundraiser will be held at Sue West Memorial Arena on Josephville Road starting at 9am.
