Horse enthusiasts are invited to ride from the Coombs Fairgrounds to the RDN Parksville Rail Trail to raise money in a Pledge Ride for ETRA Therapeutic Riding Association.
During the ride, taking place on Sunday, June 24, folks can access a myriad of trails in the Virginia Estates and Coombs area.
The Pledge Ride is ETRA’s most important in-house fundraiser. ETRA helps people with disabilities experience closeness to an animal and see the world from a different perspective.
Riders and non-riders can collect pledges. The top five pledge collectors will be awarded with prizes at the barbecue following the ride.
Registration is at 9:30 a.m. at the Coombs Fairgrounds. Ride out time will begin from 10-10:30 a.m. for an approximately hour to three hour long ride. Trails will be marked for shorter and longer rides. A barbecue will take place between noon and 1 p.m.
