Free Spirit Riders Rideathon Saturday

The Free SPIRIT Riders will hold their 27th annual Ride-a-Thon tomorrow on their ranch east of Fond du Lac on Highway 23. Bonnie Schwoerer  is a volunteer for the program. She says she wanted to get involved with helping people with special needs and her love of horses gives her the best of both worlds. That works relieves her stress and gives her a chance to see a lot of miracles happening before her eyes. As for the Ride-a-Thon it begins with rider demonstrations from 9:30 a.m. to noon.  A deejay will play music from noon to 1:30 p.m. Healing Paws will be there and Villa Loretto will have a petting area. There is also a meet and greet with the horses and more. Look for raffles, a silent auction, and from 11:30 to 1:30 a pulled pork dinner. Events for the Ride-a-Thon will wrap up about 3 p.m. that afternoon.
