TUSCUMBIA – The annual Saddle Up for St. Jude Trail Ride and Festival at Gardiner Farm, already the nation’s largest trail ride for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, TN invites you to please join us at Gardiner Farms July 20-21 for the 22nd annual Saddle Up for St. Jude Trail Ride and Concerts!

This Shoals area event has raised almost $2 million dollars for St. Jude the last 21 years! 

Although they call it a trail ride, you do not have to own a horse to participate. It’s open to everyone. The music is going to be great, the food will be delicious and the auction is going to be fantastic!

Riders have more than 20 miles of trails spread over around 3,000 acres. King said riders choose their pace and the trails they want to explore. No all-terrain vehicles, other than those used by St. Jude volunteers, are allowed on the trails.  Bring your horse: $35 donation for the weekend.  Bring your chair and donation: $10 for Friday, $20 for Saturday.

Special Thanks to all our sponsors including Title Sponsor Mark Gates of Gator Fitness & Chase Cars!
This will be a weekend full of fun for a good cause with camping, trail riding, good food and good music!
