Ride for a Cause with APHA’s St. Jude Trail Ride

FORT WORTH, TEXAS— The American Paint Horse Association (APHA) and Benbrook Stables invite equine enthusiasts to help find a cure for childhood cancer by participating in their annual “Saddle Up! For St. Jude” benefit trail ride on Saturday, May 3, in Benbrook, Texas. Last year, the inaugural event drew 98 riders and raised more than $12,000 for the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

The 10-mile adventure, which begins at Benbrook Stables, will take riders along the trails surrounding beautiful Lake Benbrook. It will be a great way to enjoy the day with fellow horse enthusiasts while supporting an outstanding cause. Upon returning to the stables, APHA will host a chuck wagon cookout, the local
Cowtown Opry musical group will entertain and a special benefit auction will be held.

Minimum donation requested for the ride, lunch and entertainment is $35, and all proceeds benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. All breeds of horses are welcome. To reserve a spot on the ride and your special “Saddle Up for St. Jude T-shirt,” contact APHA by April 1.

Further details, including a map, sign-up forms, a list of auction items, rain date information, a list of special donors and the names of ride participants can be found by visiting apha.com/stjude.

For more information, contact ride coordinator Brenda Jewell at bjewell@apha.com or call (817) 222-6431.

If you can’t join the ride, please consider a donation, and we will send you a St. Jude lapel pin. Make your check out to “St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital” and send to:
