LEESBURG, GA (WALB) -

Several horseback riders were up early Saturday morning, riding in support of a good cause.

The equestrian community came together for the "Giddy Up For Recovery" Trail Ride at Walden Farm in Leesburg.

About 50 riders came out for the ride benefiting GraceWay Recovery Residence for women. It's a faith based non-profit organization dedicated to helping women live a sober life.

"The community embracing us and God's grace embracing us is what makes this work. So were very, very grateful to everybody that could join us today," said Liz Dixon, Executive Director of GraceWay Recovery.

There was also a raffle, silent auction, and food. This year, the organization is celebrating a decade of serving women.
