Saddle up for a 'Little Bit of Fun' at Ride-a-thon

   Fun, friends, great prizes, food and an opportunity to help others are all part of the Little Bit Therapeutic Riding Center's 21st annual Ride-A-Thon on Saturday, Aug. 15 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. The ride will be held at the Little Bit stable in Woodinville, where the Tolt Pipeline provides access to wooded trails in the Redmond Watershed leading to Farrel-McWhirter Park. Participants can also walk or ride bikes. Ample parking for horse trailers is available and a complimentary hoedown barbecue will be held at Little Bit the afternoon of the event.
  
   Prizes have been donated by area businesses to reward riders raising the most money.
  
   All proceeds from the event will directly benefit this non-profit program that provides therapeutic horseback riding to over 100 children and adults with disabilities. For information, registration and pledge forms, call (425) 882-1554.
