The Gordon County Saddle Club hosted their annual Ride for a Cure benefit trail ride event which took place Saturday, May 20 at Dry Creek Trails in the Chattahoochee-Oconee National Forest.

There were 46 cowboys and cowgirls of all ages saddled up to hit the trails to help support a good cause. At the end of the ride, sandwiches, snacks, water and soft drinks were provided for all participants compliments of the GCSC.

To complete the evening event, fundraising efforts also included a raffle drawing and auction for multiple items consisting of handmade crafts, gift baskets, along with other horse and non-horse related items donated by individuals and sponsors within the community.

GCSC is excited to announce through horseback rider participation, raffle and auction items, T-Shirt sales, and online contributions, they raised a grand total of $3,350 for the American Cancer Society.

The club wishes to thank everyone for their support and for helping make their event a wonderful success.
