Jeopardy Benefit Ride
41YRS AGO, a fundraiser began called the”Ride-a-thon”. Equestrian riders & believers sponsored riders by pledging (nickels,dimes,quarters & dollars) for every mile they rode. The surrounding communities opened their fields and parks to accommodate mileage. Tack,hay,bedding and feed were graciously donated for the heath & welfare of horse & students. The 4H clubs sponsored Ham Dinners and donated proceeds to benefit the success of Sebastian programs. All proceeds went to support building the foundation under a beautiful idea of Equine Assisted Therapy for all. Over the 42 years, as this organization has grown, so has the support. Annually,65-125 riders come out to our Evansburg State Park facility, in Collegeville,Pa, for a friendly trail ride together. Many of the original riders still come out to ride in this event. Some meet every year just for this annual trail ride! The Ride-a-thon evolved into The Jeopardy Quiz Ride. Each rider gathers their trail buddies, donates an entry fee and earns points answering Equine Questions as they compete for fun prizes and out do themselves with creative costumes! All around just a fun trail thru a beautiful park, with friends out for the same cause…and a little friendly competition in our favorite subject, Horses.
