Ride with Pride Returns to Auburn in June


It's time to sign up for the Placer County Sheriff Office's annual Ride With Pride, a one-day camp that pairs grade-school children with deputies and their horse partners. 

Participants may choose to attend Ride With Pride on one of four days: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday, June 9, 10, 11 or 12 at the Gold Country Fairgrounds in Auburn. Members of the Sheriff's Office, all with horse experience, have developed a complete program featuring sessions in which children have fun while learning about the care, handling and riding of horses. Children ages seven through 12 are invited to participate.

This is a free event. 

    Classes will be held from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. each day and a free lunch is provided.

 For more information or to register, call Community Services Officer Lynn Harrison at (916) 652-2419 or email her at
