Novem­ber 11th is Vet­er­ans Day, in ob­ser­vance of the sign­ing of the armistice in 1918, on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, end­ing World War One.

The Amer­i­can Com­pet­i­tive Trail Horse As­so­ci­a­tion is shoot­ing for 111 events on Vet­er­ans Day week­end, with all pro­ceeds (ex­cept di­rect ad­min­is­tra­tive costs) go­ing to Veteran Out­reach Pro­grams, such as Hors­es4Heroes.

“At each event, the Ride Host will tell us which or­ga­ni­za­tion to send the pro­ceeds to, even if it’s a lo­cal need,” said AC­THA comptroller Ann Kin­sey. “AC­THA will for­ward the pro­ceeds as di­rected.”

Noted AC­THA chief op­er­at­ing of­fi­cer Robin Til­gh­man: “AC­THA’s bat­tle cry to their 1,000-plus Ride Hosts of record is, ‘Give of your­self on Satur­day, and reap your re­ward on Sun­day with another event for your­self,’ thus con­tin­u­ing our phi­los­o­phy of com­merce along­side char­ity.”
