Driving up 101 we noticed a line of horses and realized it was Rancheros Visitadores “Riding for the Cure”.  Turned off and got lucky to view these beautiful horses and their riders.

Long tradition for that group. they used to leave from the Santa Barbara Mission then ride over the mountains to stay at ranches in Santa Ynez. Now they go to Mission Santa Ynez for their blessing.

This was not the "Ride for the Cure" day; they all wore the new pink shirts (they have been a different pink pattern each year) for that on Saturday. Yes, long tradition; 88 years to be exact.

After the parade most take off the shirt. Some were wearing them. It's a long ride so back to the working attire. A lot goes into this ride. Medical personnel and vets travel along too. Water stops too. Got to keep the horses and their riders hydrated.

As a cancer "survivor"..
I'd be grateful for merely
some aftercare.

Nostrachumash; Congrats on being a "survivor". I am still fighting, (post chemo and starting radiation next week) meanwhile, my husband is out with the rest of the cowboys until Friday.

Thanks, & im sorry for your condition.
Cancer is a terrible thing that no-one really recovers from..
Today's medicine, as well as the medical community, does not address recovery..
but rather a "maintenance" stance.
No profit in the Cure.
