Camp Verde Marshal John Wischmeyer, right, leads 26 other riders out of the staging area for a daylong trail ride. The Marshal's office uses the proceeds from the trail ride to buy Christmas gifts for area children.
Marshal John Wischmeyer led the ride for the 10th year. Riders covered about 8.5 miles with a stop for lunch at the halfway point. The ride started near the intersection of Arizona 169 and Interstate 17. Proceeds from the ride will be used to purchase Christmas gifts for children in the area.
