CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – Horseback riders attracted attention Saturday making their way from Holyoke to Springfield.
The riders, expert Puerto Rican equestrians from Holyoke, stopped off to say hello to 22News along the way. Their continuing mission is to alert drivers that horses and their riders have the right of way. It’s a message they stress during their frequent trips through Western Massachusetts.
12 year old Omar Morales of Holyoke is the youngest horseman, having started to ride when he was 4 years old.
