Local man joins horse riding program

GOLD HILL — Daniel R.C. Pope recently enrolled in the American Quarter Horse Association Horseback Riding Program.

The program recognizes and rewards American Quarter Horse Association members for time spent with their horses in activities such as trail rides, shows, working cattle, pleasure driving and riding.

Participants record their hours driving or riding an American Quarter Horse. Although ownership of an American Quarter Horse is not required, official hours must be accrued with a registered American Quarter Horse.

Awards ranging from merchandise gift certificates to trophy belt buckles are presented at 100- to 5,000-hour levels.

Orientation

The Rowan County Humane Society will hold a new member orientation Wednesday.

The session is scheduled to begin at 6:30 p.m. in the Rowan Public Library’s Stanback Auditorium.
