GLENDA SUTTON HAS LED A PRIVILEGED LIFE
In 1998 Glenda Sutton responded to a Herald Sun news article asking accomplished camel and horse riders interested in becoming a member of the Australian Camel Racing Team to Submit an application stating why they would like to become a camel jockey worthy of representing Australia in the United Arab Emirates.
In order to prove her riding ability, Glenda chose to include the background photo of this web page as a part of her initial application. The horse "Dream Weaver" was Glenda's life, and had already helped her to achieve great things.
Following an overwhelming response to the article, a representative of Sponsor's 'Australian World Traders' contacted Glenda requesting she compete as a camel jockey in the 1998 Oaklands Camel Races. Glenda attended the race meeting 100% focussed on passing any test put in front of her, and rode in five races for the day with pleasing results.
Not long after this, Glenda found herself travelling to the U.A.E to race camels in the desert as a guest of The President Sheik Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nayan.
The purpose of the trip was to strengthen the ties between the two countries and to promote camel racing in Australia.
When Glenda returned home she immediately began a new life breaking in and training her own camels, with Dream Weaver there with her all the way helping to bring the camels into the yards every day.
Exactly one year later Glenda attended the 1999 Oaklands Camel Races competing on her own camel "Hightower", and has followed her passion for camels, training and racing ever since.
Glenda had Dream Weaver for 21 years of her life (14 - 35yrs). They grew to the same height together, and were so close that for many years a cousin of Glenda's thought 'Weaver' was her best friend (of the human kind). Glenda Sutton knows that Dream Weaver and her photograph are the reasons she has led such a privileged life.
