Equine Fundraiser Ride the Spectrum for Autism

 

The equine fundraiser Ride the Spectrum for Autism is Saturday, June 8-9, 2013 at Little Trails Horse Camp in Martinsville, IN.   The flyer with all the info is at the bottom of the page or visit  https://www.facebook.com/events/585352424830440/
 
Kathy, Rio, Mary Ann and Flash went last year when it was held at Midwest Trail Ride in Norman, Indiana.  We all had a blast and the fundraising was a great success. 

 
We stayed in a cedar cabin right next to the horses.
  
Rio and Flash were happy in their stalls.
 

Rio is always curious and likes to watch what's going on.

                             Flash would rather eat.
  
                                                           Michaela Walker was the Grand Marshall of the parade that included fire departments, law enforcement and horses, of course.  

 
 








 

The smallest rescue vehicle, the 'ambulance' for trail riders.
 
Jane and her Mini
 
   and the Red Hats & Purple Chaps ladies.
 

  Every parade has to end.
 

 And then there was the fun show.

Monkeys and Bananas  

  
                       








 Ride with a full glass of water.








And the Rescue Ride









There was a lot of applause for the enthusiastic riders.

Mounted Shooters came to perform for us.  They ride as fast as they can through a course of balloons on stakes.  They try to shoot all of the balloons at a gallop.  I don't think there were any misses.




Kathy tried out the gun without Rio.

Horses have to learn not to shy from the guns.  They wear horse ear plugs just like the riders.
 
IT WAS A GREAT TIME AND I'M SURE THIS YEAR'S EVENT WILL BE JUST AS MUCH FUN!  BESIDES, IT'S FOR A GREAT CAUSE!
