Generous gift for Guy from Maryborough business

A MARYBOROUGH business has shown renowned horseman Guy McLean that the spirit of generosity is alive and well on the Fraser Coast.

Guy visited Maryborough's Bob Jane T-Marts outlet, owned by Steve and Juscinta Lewis, this week to buy four new tyres for his truck and to get a wheel alignment done before he heads further north.

Guy performed his spectacular show at Susan River Homestead, which his parents own and run, last weekend.

When he went to pay the bill, Steve and Juscinta told him they would gift him the tyres and that he now had a new Australian sponsor.

Guy took to his Facebook page to thank Steve and Juscinta for their generosity.

"It was totally unexpected and highly appreciated and just more proof that if you do good things, good things happen," he wrote.

Steve said he and Juscinta had discussed gifting the tyres to Guy before he arrived.

"He is a good person," he said.

"We've got to keep him and the horses safe on the road."

Guy has had an illustrious career as a horseman, winning two World Championships and "beating the Americans at their own game" when he travelled to Kentucky to compete, Steve said.

Steve said Guy was a battler and it was great to see someone out there living their dream, rather than just talking about it.

"He followed his dream; all we can do is try to support him," Steve said.

Steve said the kind gesture wasn't anything out of the ordinary for the business.

"We always think about the people who are special in our lives and the people trying to succeed," he said.

As for Guy, judging from his Facebook comments, the gesture meant the world to him.

"Thanks so much to two wonderful friends for your tremendous gift of kindness, one that will be remembered for many hours along the roads and tracks of the land I love."
