COLUMBIA CITY â In these economic times, the loss of a job may be a cause for alarm and uncertainty.
When Pam Castle lost her job, an idea came into her head.
âGod was saying, âThis is what I want you to do,ââ said Castle. With that nudge Riding With Faith was on its way to becoming reality.
Castle takes in young people who may not be heading in the right direction, needing a little guidance to rein them back to the right path.
To raise awareness of the program and to help with funding, the board of directors are hosting a Ride With Faith Schooling Show this Saturday, beginning at 9 a.m. at the Shrine Horse Show Grounds in Columbia City.
The event is similar to the 4-H Horse program in that competition will include halter, showmanship, Western, English and contesting, with judges evaluating the competitors.
