We Broke the Record!

This past Sunday, Peters Creek Farm hosted the American Competitive Trail Horse Association's Ride for the Rescues, a six-mile long competitive ride with six obstacles. The ride was held across the United States, and we were the location for the State of Georgia.

Our participation in this event helped break the World Record for the Largest Competitive Trail Ride, with over 1600 riders across the country. By early count, our ride helped raise over $60,000 for the rescues across the country, with benefit to our own charity of choice, the Georgia Equine Rescue League. We are proud of the 50 riders who signed up to participate in 100+ degree temps in the representation of our fine state.

Thanks to all who supported our endeavors by either participating in the competition or coming to our aid in the ground prep, management, sponsorship, and documentary account for the event. It couldn't have been done without any of you. ACTHA, the Georgia Equine Rescue League, and all the horses involved in the rescue programs across the country appreciate each and every one of you taking the time to Ride for the Rescues and becoming a part of history in the Guinness (TM) World Record Book.
