Horse riders honor heroes
On a recent morning, two Estacada High School seniors made their way through town on horseback while carrying an American flag.
In honor of Veterans Day on Thursday, Nov. 11, Amber Haggstrom rode her Kiger mustang, Tubs, and Jasmine Fairchild rode her quarterhorse, Tonka, from Estacada High School to downtown before ending at the Estacada Veterans Memorial.
"This is our way of showing respect to our American veterans. Our veterans sacrificed their lives for our country. So rain or shine we will be here showing our support," Haggstrom said. "They have earned our everlasting gratitude. We just want to say thank you to all the brave men and women who sacrificed their lives to give us all a better life and a country to call our home."
