Horse riders rode Saturday to help find a cure for cancer.

The ride is part of a two day event called Canter for a Cure at Buckeye Horse Park in Canfield.

Riders rode in several competitions in pleasure classes and contest classes.

Head advisor for judges Choice Anthony Cope said the event gives riders a chance to participate in several different ways.

“It’s a 4-H non-profit organization giving to another non-profit organization. We did this so our kids could have a community service and also so the kids could ride in events that they would not normally get to ride,” said Cope.

Riders that compete in the two day event this weekend will be able to ride at the Canfield Fair.
