Saddle Up a success

Tuesday, January 1, 2013

Several wagons pulled by horses and mules took part in the Saddle Up for St. Jude trail ride Oct. 27.
CLAY COUNTY -- Although they didn't reach the goal of $3,500, the Saddle Up for St. Jude trail ride did send a nice donation of $775 to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in 2012.

The trail ride took place Oct. 27, traveling from west of the Eel River Bridge on State Road 42 to downtown Poland and back.

The riders enjoyed a lunch, prepared by the Poland Lion's Club, and returned by a different route to the west side of the river.

Riders collected pledges for distance traveled.

T-shirts were also sold promoting the ride with the profits going to St. Jude.

Cook's Corner Restaurant in Poland sold several of the T-shirts before the ride.

According to those who took part, some T-shirts are still remaining in the restaurant in case anyone is interested in helping out the cause.

Horseback riders and wagons pulled by horses and mules made a caravan through the river bottoms and back.

The weather was cold, but the warm spirits of the riders made it a pleasant day.

Of all the riders who took part in the Saddle Up for St. Jude trail ride, Kaitlyn Ruff raised the most money in pledges.

Through her efforts, she received a camp stool with the St. Jude logo stamped on it.

This is the first I had heard of it. Perhaps if It were publicized a little more, they may have been closer to their goal.
