Trail ride for pets to be held December 16
Placeholder Image
A trail ride and fun day Dec. 16 won't cost a thing, except a can or two of dog or cat food to donate to the Statesboro-Bulloch County Animal Shelter.
    A group of horse enthusiasts hoping to organize a casual, no dues-type of organization invite riders to meet at Holly Kimbrell's place in Jenkins County Dec. 16 for a trail ride, arena games and more.
    "We want to form a group where everyone is welcome, regardless of experience or riding style," said Holli Deal Bragg, who along with Sylvia Dutton and others are working to organize the events.
    "We want everyone to feel welcome, whether they are backyard horse owners or have been showing for years," Dutton said.
    Horse enthusiasts are invited to come ride, enjoy the day and share ideas for the proposed group, she said.
    All horses must have proof of a negative Coggins test. There is no ride fee, but a donation of dog or cat food is required.
    Kimbrell is providing hot dogs. Riders should bring side dishes to share with others, provide their own drinks and bring lawn chairs if they wish.
    The trail ride begins at 10 a.m. and afterward, lunch will be served and riders are welcome to participate in fun games in the arena.
    Directions from Statesboro: Take Ga. 25 to the Jenkins County line. Drive four miles past the county line, passing a church on the left. Take the next paved road to the left after passing the church. It is unmarked, but is Elam Road. Drive about a mile, then turn at Four Points Riding Club.
