Registration opens for North Country RIDE

North Country RIDE in Esko brings people from ages 4 to 82 together in a variety of ways to experience the power and grace of horses.

Some people ride, some volunteer with the horses, some volunteer with the riders. Junior volunteers get to learn, volunteer and ride.

Registration is now open with sessions starting June 2, July 21, and Sept. 8. The eight-week junior volunteer program starts June 16. There are openings in all sessions.

Volunteers agree they get as much out of volunteering as the riders, somehow just sharing the experience gives everyone a lift.

A wide variety of volunteer opportunities exists for anyone age 14 and older. A short volunteer orientation begins at 5 p.m. May 21 at the Esko farm.
