National Rescue Ride – Sunday, October 19, 2008
On Sunday, October 19, 2008, equestrians across America participated in the annual National Rescue Ride. Each horseback riding event benefited its own choice of equine-related charities. The trail ride pictured here raised funds for Saddlebred Rescue, Inc.

A never-ending sense of trust
Is strengthened by the whirling dust.
And when dear friends together roam,
We’re cheered before the long walk home.
We tread the trail, as it unfolds,
And autumn turns the greens to golds.
The lead horse surely sets the pace;
The journey will our ills erase.
Arriving at the barn again,
We raise a toast to where we’ve been.
Then, tempted by a banquet sweet,
We mark a perfect day complete.
