ROCHESTER, Minn. - An organization is giving horseback rides at the Olmsted County Fair for a good cause.
Pine Island-based RideAbility is an organization that gives therapeutic horseback riding lessons to people who have disabilities.
"We have autistc kids that start out not talking and eventually they get to the point where they try and talk because they want to tell the horse to 'walk on,'" explains senior volunteer Janet Snyder.
The suggested $5 donation per ride helps RideAbility continue to give these therapeutic lessons and raise money for scholarships for people who can't afford the lessons.
RideAbility's horse rides will be at the fair through Sunday.
