The Errington Therapeutic Riding Association’s annual Pledge Ride was a success. Held at the Arbutus Meadows Equestrian Centre recently, 20 riders enjoyed scenic trails and contributed  over $3,000 in pledges towards ETRA’s riding program costs for people with disabilities.

Congratulations to the first five pledge-amount winners, in order: Lesley Coultish  (Nanaimo), Jayden Henderson (Nanoose Bay), Kendra and Nina Edgar (Coombs),  Jayne Lapper (Qualicum Beach) and Barb McGowan (Parksville). A special note of thanks goes out to the members of Cedar Horse Club and Silver Spur Riding Club, as well as to all the other valued pledge riders who contributed.
