The Gordon County Saddle Club raised close to $4,000 recently with its Saddle Up for St. Jude charity ride at Dry Creek Trails.


The group of horseback riders did a two-and-a-half hour ride to a nice lunch, compliments of the GCSC, followed by a raffle prize drawing and live auction for great items.


The money raised will go to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and its mission of finding cures and saving children from cancer and other deadly diseases.


GCSC meets the fourth Thursday of each month at the Gordon County Agricultural Service Center in Calhoun at 7 p.m. For future club events, activities, and trail rides, visit
