ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Several riders saddled up for a good cause Saturday morning. 80 equestrians rode their horses for the "Saddle up for St. Jude" fundraiser. There they were able to ride through 300 acres and get a guided tour of the Quail Crossing Stable in Lee County.

There was also several raffle drawings , one for a horse, to help bring in more money for the hospital, and their cancer research.

They do cancer treatment for children. And if you have ever been treated there, than you can go back there the rest of your life for free. They don't charge for anything. Anybody who treats children for free is a great cause," said Quail Crossing Stables Owner, Lauren Watson. 

Lauren Watson and her friends hopes to make this ride an annual fundraiser for St. Jude's Hospital.
