The American Competitive Trail Horse Association is proud to host a nationwide trail challenge called Ride to Rememberon November 10th & 11th 2012. ACTHA riders all across the nation will hit the trails to pay tribute and remember our nation’s service men and women. The Wrangler National Patriot Programhas pledged $2,500 towards ACTHA’s nationwide charity trail ride and has pledged up to $10,000 to match the funds raised for all the ACTHA Ride to Remember Competitive Trail Challenges combined.
Every ACTHA Competitive Trail Challenge held over the Veteran’s Day weekend, will assist in raising much needed funds for Horses for Heroes- NM INC. ACTHA Ride Hosts across the nation will also have the ability to donate a portion of those funds raised to their local nonprofit organizations that support our wounded warriors.
ACTHA’s Marketing Director Tammy Sronce was thrilled to have the Wrangler National Patriot Program on board. “We have been working very hard to ensure this event is not only a first class tribute to our service men and women, but a wonderful fundraiser for our veterans. Having assistance from the Wrangler National Patriot Program will not only increase our donation to Horses for Heroes-NM INC, it will directly increase the impact we are able to make on the lives of our wounded warriors. We are very grateful to Wrangler for their support”.
