Health Beat: Hit the trails tomorrow to help horses

New England Equine Rescue North is hosting a Flag Day Trail Ride tomorrow in West Newbury.

The six-mile ride on some of the town’s lesser-known trails will support the group’s mission of rescuing, rehabilitating and rehoming horses and donkeys in need.

Registration for riders and horses will start at 9 a.m. tomorrow, with rides departing between 10 and 11 a.m., at Long Hill Farm on Route 113. A light lunch will be served after the ride.

The cost is $30, with all proceeds benefiting NEER North horses. The ride will also include a loop around the NEER North barn and paddocks.
