Ride-A-Thon is a very exciting time for the staff of LoveWay as we get to sit front and center to witness the majestic beauty of watching over 100 LoveWay supporters lead off for a scenic ride through the Reigseckers’ property.

This year we are planning some exciting new changes to Ride-A-Thon! As in the past, we will be offering our pancake and sausage breakfast sponsored by the Exchange Club of Elkhart County, having our locally donated bake sale and of course the beautiful Trail ride itself.  New this year, we have decided to provide the Fun Fair with its own day of celebration which will occur Spring/Summer of 2019.  In place of the Fun Fair, we will be providing equine inspired services and experiences to enhance our trail riders experience.  We will opportunities for a professional Photograph to be taken of riders with their horses, offer the newest information on feed and supplementation, professional saddle fitting will also we be offered and this is just to name a few!

We hope you will come for the food, ride and of course all the fun, and leave knowing that you have supported a program that has faithfully touched the specials needs community of Elkhart County for over 45 years.  A program committed to never turning anyone away due to the inability to pay.  An opportunity for individuals who face very real limitations every day to grow physically, emotionally and cognitively all by the blessing of a horse.

A minimum of $40 is required to ride, but we encourage you to collect sponsorships from family, friends, and local businesses. There are prizes for riders that collect the most sponsors!
