Mother Nature was not on her best behavior during our recent Trail Ride for the Red Cross.
It had started out as a lovely Sunday fundraiser for the Wood’s River Chapter (which serves Carroll, Grayson, and Wythe counties and Galax).
However, fair skies suddenly turned to dangerously stormy conditions, and we were forced to recall our horses and riders from the trails due to safety concerns.
Happily, everyone — riders, horses, and volunteers — found safe shelter. However, the event had to be cancelled.
