On Sunday afternoon, cowpokes of all ages gathered at the R.S. Ranch in Mansfield to ride through obstacles and raise money for diabetes research.
Carol Malony of Otter Lake has been organizing the annual Cowboy Challenge for the past four years. She started the event because she wanted to get involved after her daughter, Natasha Harris, was diagnosed with type one diabetes.
There were 19 riders from across the Pontiac and Ottawa Valley that participated in the event, divided among three categories.
