People can ride, walk or just hang out around the barn and take a horse-drawn wagon ride being offered to support this year’s Children’s Wish Ride, says event organizer Rene Leclerc.
The Children’s Wish Ride raises funds to support the B.C. and Yukon Children’s Wish Foundation.
The event takes place Sunday, May 26 at the Minton Creek Ranch just one kilometre on the right past the Wildwood Store on Highway 97.
The event starts at 9 a.m. and goes all day.
There will be a band playing, a silent auction, lunch by donation, and a raffle for a two-night stay at the Elysia Resort on Quesnel Lake.
And of course the main focus of the day will be on those who enjoy horseback riding.
There will be two loop trails set up for the event, one four miles long, and one 10 miles long, Leclerc says.
He says people who don’t have a horse are also welcome to walk the trails or ride them on a bike.
Last year he says the event raised $6,500 for the Children’s Wish Foundation.
The Children’s Wish Foundation grants the wishes of children facing a high-risk, life-threatening illness or condition.
Pledge sheets are also available at Beaver Valley Feeds, Eagleview Equestrian Centre, Cariboo Spurs, and the Trail Riders club.
