The Thistle Down Run endurance horse run will be held Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 20-21 near Frazee. There will be camping and endurance rides throughout the weekend.
Camping is available for $25 a night or $20 a night with two or more night's stay. Early camping is available so call ahead. There is a 15-mile novice ride for locals who would like to try the sport.
