Lost Dutchman Days Queen Isaac completes ’50 Pink Horse Breast Cancer Challenge’

Ashley Isaac, 2018 Lost Dutchman Days queen, accepted the “50 Pink Horse Breast Cancer Challenge” and on Oct. 21 rode as many horses as she could at the Apache Junction Rodeo Grounds, 1590 E. Lost Dutchman Blvd.

“This is a challenge that rodeo queens from all over the country are participating in,” Heidi Erickson, Lost Dutchman Days royalty director, said in a release.

Ms. Isaac is dedicating each ride to breast-cancer survivors, fighters and those who have lost the battle. Also, she is collecting pledges for each horse ridden and other donations.

On Oct. 28 Ms. Isaac rode her 50th horse, according to a post at facebook.com/LDDRodeoQueens

“My 50th horse just got rode. Thank you so much to everyone who let me ride their horses,” she wrote.

“It’s not easy to let someone just jump up there and do a pattern on them. It takes a village to make something like this challenge possible. Thank you to everyone who donated. It’s not too late; I have until the 31st if you still want to donate,” she said.
