The Ellis River Riders will also hold its first versatility trail event this summer. Plans are underway for the event, in affiliation with other organizations throughout Maine.

The vice president of the club, Deb Cayer, gave a presentation on vacationing with a horse. She has firsthand knowledge of the topic and shared information about the creative idea for horse lovers to spend time with their animals.
