horse poop. But, it's for a good cause. This is the weekend that the local chapter of the American Heart Association hosts a horse ride-a-thon at Lakewood. There will be approximately 1400 horses on the beach, over the weekend. Cliff and I used to bring our horses and ride with these cool folks, but for the last couple of years Cliff had bike riding events and this year, our move has just thrown us out of whack and it just didn't happen.
Anyway, today, I'm sort of thankful for horse poop and thankful for organizations such as the American Heart Association who support research and educational projects for heart disease. This ride was started over 30 years ago and has grown into a huge fundraising event. I just went to the AHA's website and saw that as of today, the horse riders have raised over $280,000. How cool is that?
I went out this morning and took a few pictures. It is truly amazing to see all the horses on the beach and each one of the riders have raised money for the American Heart Association. Take a look..........
Tomorrow is the big riding day and there will be so many more horses than pictured here.
It's a sight to behold.
Have a great weekend, y'all!
