MASON CITY, Iowa - Horse riders from Northwood and Osage met together in Mason City on Friday as part of the Pony Express Riders' annual "Ride Day" to benefit Easter Seals' Camp Sunnyside in Des Moines.

Now in its 51st year, every year on Easter weekend, riders from across the state ride to the meeting point in Ankeny, where they all ride to the camp. Along the way, riders raise funds for the camp, which serves adults and children with disabilities every summer.

The first ride on March 30, 1968 raised $12,000. Since that time, the group has raised over $10 million.
