In honour of the Don Tanner Memorial Event.
Don started his cutting career in Kempsey NSW back when it all began: A new exciting horse sport came to Australia's shores. Don being an accomplished Campdrafter & well known horse trainer became interested in cutting and what it had to offer. Don wanting to progress his career took a job with Eddie Wilson of Bowie Texas home of the Great Docs Perscription. Don spent many years in the states training & showing Cutting Horses. One of the highlights of his career was winning the World in 1985 on his favourite Stallion Jae Bar Fletch. He also trained Jae Bar Fletch's full sister Jae Bar Maise who also became a world champion. He was very proud of both horses & he loved to talk about them. He loved Jae Bar Fletch that much that he named his first born son Fletch. Don's family are honoured to have this Maiden Memorial Event dedicated to his memory.
