Ride for the Mustangs raises $32,777

Advertisement

On Sept. 17, ACTHA founders Karen VanGetson and Carrie Scrima presented a check to the Mustang Heritage Foundation for $32,777 in support of the Mustang Heritage Foundation's mission to increase the number of adoptions of American Mustangs.

ACTHA had selected the Mustang Heritage Foundation as its beneficiary for the 2011 Guinness World Record Ride. On Sept. 10, a total of 1,251 trail riders from across the United States and the world saddled up to help the great American Mustang. Even trail riders in Germany rode to support the cause. Together, riders set a new Guinness World Record for the "largest competitive trail ride."

"It is so special to see trail riders from around the world unite like this, for a common cause," stated Tammy Sronce, ACTHA's director of marketing. "With the help of our riders and ride managers, not only did we set a new world record, we did something much more important and that's the donation we were able to raise for the Mustang Heritage Foundation to assist the Mustangs in their adoption process."

"Thank you to the ride hosts, trail riders and ACTHA for this generous donation," said Patti Colbert, executive director of the Mustang Heritage Foundation. "We appreciate you raising awareness about America's Mustangs and helping us in our mission to find adoptive homes for these great horses!"
