The Rode to the Cross, a horseback version of a walk-a-thon, will be held again on May 12 on Rim Road west of Montrose.
According to chairman Sarah Bowman, "This cross country competition of endurance and compassion will be for 5 to 21 miles in teams of three." The competition is a fundraiser for the Cowboy at the Cross youth outreach that produces three camps in the summer, as well as an event at the Apache Reservation in Arizona. The camps include rodeo, horse training and one for pony riders. A horse training class will be given again by world champion reiner Doug Milholland, who comes from Oklahoma.
