NBC NATIONAL NEWS — They call themselves the Dusty Saddlebags, and they're inviting people to saddle up and raise money for breast cancer awareness.
Members of the group belong to a Southern California chapter of a national organization called 40 Something Cowgirls, a horse lovers club for women.
The local chapter is sponsoring a combination horseback ride, 5K walk and nature walk to benefit the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Several members of the Dusty Saddlebags are currently fighting cancer, and the fundraiser is a chance for their fellow cowgirls to rally around them, all while raising money for a great cause.
The fundraiser will be held Saturday, October 22, at Vasquez Rocks in Agua Dulce.
The cost is $20 per participant with all proceeds going to the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
