Riders saddle up for charity

Horseback riders compete Sunday afternoon

Horseback riders of all ages helped raise money for the Albany Humane Society this weekend.

The Dougherty County Saddle Club sponsored the annual Albany Autumn Classic Charity horse show which wrapped up Sunday afternoon at the Potter Community Center. Riders competed for $10,000 in cash and prizes, and raised almost $15,000 for the Humane Society.

About 70 horseback riders competed in the horse show.
