Congratulations to the December 40th Anniversary Gift Card Winner!

Congratulations to Rita Baumgart, the December 2012 winner of Fort Western Stores' 40th Anniversary $400 gift card. Rita received a $400 Fort Western gift card which can be redeemed at Fort Western online, with our catalog or at our Lincoln, Columbus or Nebraska City, NE retail locations.

Rita and her family call Nebraska home and now spend their time out riding any of their five Arabian horses as often as possible. At one time they bred, raised, and trained horses for show, having as many as 29 horses at one time. Rita is someone who truly adores her horses and counts them as members of the family. Now her time is filled with riding for the sheer joy of it.

"You've got to be kidding me! This is a great way to start the new year."

  1. Congrats!! The Fort is the best place to get a giftcard to! There's a little bit for everyone there! We LOVE getting giftcards there, we actually need to get up to Lincoln to use up some and get the ponies some new blankies!
