Saddle Up for St. Jude’s May 3

FORT WORTH, TEXAS—Don’t miss your chance to ride for a reason with the American Paint Horse Association (APHA) and Benbrook Stables on Saturday, May 3, in Benbrook, Texas, at the annual “Saddle Up! for St. Jude” benefit trail ride. Last year, the inaugural event drew 98 riders and raised more than $12,000 for the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, which works to find a cure for catastrophic childhood diseases such as cancer.

The 10-mile adventure, which begins at Benbrook Stables, will take riders along the trails surrounding beautiful Lake Benbrook. Upon returning to the stables, APHA will host a chuck wagon cookout and a special benefit auction will be held. Also, the local Cowtown Opry musical group, trick roper Bryan Schronk and trick riding duo the Kamikaze Kowgirls will entertain.

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.

Further details, including a map, sign-up forms, a list and photos 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.
