A group of dedicated equine enthusiasts representing the area from Cordes Junction to Paulden volunteered two days of their time for the first annual Ride of Passage fundraiser to help a couple of worthy causes at the Yavapai Fairgrounds this past weekend.

Besides helping raise money for a young women's plan to ride halfway across the U.S., TAILS Horse Rescue (in Chino Valley and soon in Cordes Junction) and Make-A-Wish Arizona were beneficiaries.

Colonel and Shari Lightfoot of Camp Verde run the RV park out at the Yavapai Fairgrounds and have been helping Cera Davidson, 25, prepare her horses and herself for the ride. It's something she always has wanted to do and she will raise money for both TAILS and Make-A-Wish along the way.

She's shooting for an April 1 jump-off from the TAILS Rescue Round-up in Cordes Junction. Before that, she will "somehow get to" the Rio Verde Roverette event in Cottonwood, she said.

Colonel (yes, that's his real name) said he met Davidson when he went to have work done on his motor home, and learned of her quest to ride her horses 2,200-plus miles from Arizona to Wisconsin, where she hails from. Davidson said she rented a room in Prescott Valley for two months before moving in with the Lightfoots to better care for her two rescue horses from TAILS - Thor, a paint, and Lakota, a bay.
