The North Salem Bridle Trails Association hosted its annual “Jingle Bell Jog” Sunday. The event invites riders on horseback to gather together to spread holiday cheer throughout town.

Over 50 riders turned out for the event, many–along with their horses–in costume. Attendees first gathered at Ogilvie Farm before making their way up Route 121 and past Hayfields Market where they sang holiday carols to an appreciative audience.

“The annual Jingle Jog is my favorite North Salem tradition,” said Rebecca Bose, a trail warden for the NSBTA. “The horses were adorned in beautiful and creative festive attire. We are so lucky to live in such a wonderful community. It's the perfect kick-off to the holiday season.”

Helen Houghton, who photographed the event, said, “it was such a lively, joyful gathering of horses and riders of all ages.”

Riders returned to Ogilvie Farm for refreshments and more caroling.

“We ended the day with a song in our hearts,” Houghton said.
