This is for charity, not to promote ACTHA... This benefits charities, NOT ACTHA. They make ZERO money on this ride. It's promoting awareness for many rescues and organizations who can't survive without events like this one. I feel that this is a worthy cause of posting, and I'm sorry you don't feel the same way. Horses are starving because their owners can't afford to feed them. Not all horse owners are cruel just because they can't feed their horse. They do their best, but sometimes, just can't afford it. This ride supports those organizations who can HELP those people.
If you don't feel that it's worth supporting, don't support it. Simple as that. If you do, then I applaud you and thank you from the bottom of my heart. I would love to ride, but I had already sent my entry in for a horse trial when I became aware of the event. Instead, I'm planning on sending a donation with a friend.
Pidge: The TX ride is being held in 3 places- Dallas, Junction, and Bandera. The one in OK is in Loco.
Equiniphile: The one in OH is in Canton.
Thank-you to MacabreMikolaj and Rowzy for responding while I was away. =]
