Horseback Riders Saddle Up for St. Jude Children's Hospital

Posted: Updated:

A group of horseback riders takes a trail less traveled to benefit children.

This is the Saddle Up for St. Jude fundraiser horse ride.

Events like this are held across the country, but this is the third year Priscilla Sauer and her family have organized the trail ride in the Bismarck/Mandan area.

Last year they held the trail ride on a friend's land, but this year, a pack of riders turned out for the fun at Ft. Lincoln State park, south of Mandan.

After the seven mile trail ride, everyone gets to relax and eat, including the horses!

Trail coordinator Priscilla Sauer says the event has taken a lot of organizing, but it has paid off.

Around 73 riders showed up, with around 20 volunteers, and they raised nearly eight-thousand dollars, all to be donated to the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

"If my kids ever had a problem that they needed St. Jude's, I would love it if someone would help me out, so far my kids haven't needed to use St. Jude's, and I just pay it forward, pay it forward." says Priscilla Sauer, trail coordinator.

Here's the youngest participant at today's event.

Priscilla's granddaughter, one-year-old Sophia.

Priscilla says you can mark your calendars for the last Sunday in July next year.

She is already looking for help.
