How do I participate?
When? The campaign runs throughout the month of September.
Where? Anywhere and everywhere! One way to create more excitement is to commit to riding your horse (or bicycle, or anything else) for pledges. If you decide to do that, you can ride where you like; there is no set course or location. There is no public riding at the MSSPA River Road shelter. Please be sure to follow safety measures, including telling a family member or friend of any solo ride plans and keeping a phone on you.
Who? Everyone is encouraged to participate. You can create teams on JustGiving, which makes Ride to Rescue a great activity for families, riding clubs, 4H students, and more!
How long? The standard Ride to Rescue 2020 ride length is 5 miles. Please adjust the length as needed for your situation, whether longer or shorter.
We know you’re in it for the horses, but you deserve a little something too!
When you create your JustGiving campaign page, please make sure you allow JustGiving to share your email address with MSSPA so that we can contact you. We promise we won’t send very many emails–life at the horse shelter is so busy that we simply wouldn’t have time to send you spam, even if we wanted to!
Prizes will be available for collection at the shelter after the Ride in October. We will contact you to arrange pickup.
