Active Riding Trips is going to offer two Ride for Pink™ (don’t you love the name?) horseback tours during cancer awareness this autumn that I’ve personally selected for their natural beauty and restorative hospitality. One is along the Tennessee Smoky Mountains and the other takes you to the beaches of Connemara, Ireland. Plus… 10% of each trip will go to the American Cancer Society. So you’re not only exercising good self-care as a warrior or a caretaker, and connecting with others who have shared the same experiences, you’re ensuring that the organization on the front lines of this disease remains empowered to do the work and research it needs.
I chose two places – Curra Farm in County Galway, Ireland, and the Gannon family’s French Broad Outpost Ranch in Tennessee – because both offer such exceptional and restorative environments. Each offers a safe place and comfortable setting, where there will be spaces that afford guests the chance to sit and chat or share stories, ride or work around horses, and share in communal activities or tours.
Why is this important to us here? How could it not be? Breast cancer is the second-most common cancer in American women (behind skin cancer) and second only to lung cancer in killing more women annually. The American Cancer Society estimates this year there will be over 268,000 new cases of invasive breast cancer in women and 2,600 in men; almost 63,000 carcinomas in situ (CIS) the earliest form of breast cancer; and more than 42,000 deaths (women and men) from breast cancer. Saddle up, spread the word, and let’s create an annual experience that transforms lives for the better.
