Horse lovers from across the country are getting ready for the first national effort to benefit charities helping horses. Eighty charities from more than 35 states have signed on to run a rideathon/walkathon to help raise funds and awareness for neglected, abused and unwanted horses in the National Rescue Ride on October 25 at 10 a.m. REASON (Retired Equine Adoption Society Of the Northeast) is one of them. Similar to a walkathon, the NRR will bring together thousands of riders and walkers across the country to help make a difference. Riders and walkers interested in joining the effort can go to to register and choose REASON (Retired Equine Adoption Society) as the charity to ride/walk with. The ride/walk is being held at Lackawanna State Park located in Dalton. All funds will go to R.E.A.S.O.N. There are prizes for raising the most funds as individuals, or with a club.
