Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter Wednesday, Aug. 22, 2012 5B Laura Beaton Staff Writer The 18th annual rideathon fundraiser for Horses Unlimit- ed Incorporated (HUI) occurs Aug. 25 in Sloat. All riders must wear helmets and boots. HUI, based in Cromberg, is part of the Professional Asso- ciation of Therapeutic Horse- manship International (PATH Intl.). The nonprofit group's goal is "Ensuring excellence and changing lives through equine-assisted activities and therapies." In 1969 the program was formed as the North American Riding for the Handicapped Association to promote equine-assisted activities and therapies for individuals with special needs. Locally, clients learn horse skills such as grooming, sad- dling, bridling and riding. They also learn about letters, colors, patterns, sequencing and other life skills. Students range in age from preschool to adulthood. Some participants have been in the program since its inception 19 years ago. HUI is currently a mobile operation, operating out of the Plumas-Sierra County Fair- grounds. Clients come from Sierra Valley, Loyalton and Lake Almanor, but the majori- ty of participants reside in Horses Unlimited's annual fundraise, Aug. 25 in Sloat, raises much needed funds for its therapeutic horsemanship program.

At 3:41 p.m Lucille Buchholtz, 79, of Blairsden, was travel- ing westbound on the high- way in her 2003Ford Taurus at a stated .speed of between 45 - 50 mph. Due to fatigue, according to the CHP report, Buchholtz fell asleep and her Ford traveled off the road and onto the dirt shoul- der north of the highway. Buchholtz continued to travel in the dirt until she awoke. She then turned her vehicle back to the left and re-entered the westbound traffic lane. Buchholtz turned back to the right and, in doing so, over-corrected and her vehicle began to slide across the westbound lane. The Ford struck a met- al marker and traveled down an embankment where it overturned one time. Buchholtz was wearing her seat belt at the time of the collision and no injuries were reported. Asleep, Aug. 15 At approximately 1:55 p.m, David Garfield, 35, of Reno, was traveling north on Highway 395, in his 2009 Nissan Altima sedan. Ac- cording to the CHP report, Garfield stated that he fell asleep at the wheel, until he was awakened by his vehi- cle colliding into the back of a red 1995 Toyota 4Runner driven by Diane Gustafson, 64, of Susanville. Neither drivers was hurt; however, a passenger in the Toyota complained of neck and shoulder pain.
