PHOTOS: This year’s Circle Square Ride-A-Thon welcomed 105 riders, mostly from Alberta with a few from Saskatchewan

Just over $39,000 was raised for the camp horse program during the event which was held Sept. 13th

Participants in the Circle Square Ride-A-Thon raised just over $39,000 for the camp horse program during the event which was held Sept. 13th. The money raised goes directly back into the horse program to buy hay for their herd of 65 horses, to purchase horses and tack and to maintain herd health. After the trail ride, participants enjoyed an outdoor BBQ supper. Organizers would like to say thank you to Castor Food Fair for donating the beef, buns, and corn on the cob and to Shauna-lee Thomas of Brownfield for donating the potatoes.
