The Placer County Sheriff Department’s 18th annual Ride With Pride, a one-day camp that pairs grade-school children with deputies and their horse partners, is accepting registration from kids ages seven to 12. Participants can choose to attend Ride With Pride on one day from Monday through Thursday, June 21 through 24, at the Gold Country Fairgrounds in Auburn. The free classes run from 9 a.m. to 2:30 each day; a free lunch is also provided. Members of the Sheriff’s Department, all with horse experience, have developed a complete program featuring sessions in which children have fun while learning about the care, handling and riding of horses. To register, call Community Services Officer Lynn Harrison at 652-2419.
