Backwoods Trail Riders

On May 2nd, 86 riders (including myself) and several wagons
got together and rode a 10 mile trail ride to raise money for
the Arkansas Children's Hospital. The trails were very nice and
even had SEVERAL mud holes, some horses went through them no
problem and some liked to jump over them, my horse jumped over
one, lol. Afterwards, there was a big feast and an auction to raise
more money and several people gave speeches concerning the

This year was much more enjoyable to me than last, last year
ACE ran off and I had to have some people catch him for me and
I was so saddle sore the next morning I thought I was going to
die! But it was a good turnout and we raised a good bit of money.

I am soooo sorry but I didn't take my camera because I thought
it was going to rain and after it was over with and we was loading
up a severe downpour occured, lol!

It's been awhile, but I'm back & back in the saddle!

Sounds like it was a great day and a good turnout for the Children's Hospital.
Glad you had fun

Great event!

We have ride for cure once a year and number of rides through the year to raise money to support local trails and free equestrian center. I personally think it's a great way to raise money!
