DENISON, TX -- After more than 20 years, a group that does its preaching through a display on horseback took a final ride.

The Glory Riders rode into the arena with flags waving to open the evening at the Texoma Quarter Horse Association Rodeo on Knight Road on Saturday.

A Denison woman started the group 24 years ago, performing locally and going to Salinas, California, Fort Worth's Parade of Lights, and even 18 years traveling to Louisiana's Angola prison rodeo. She has had many riders with her along the way.

"The kids start out as teenagers, but then life goes on and they get married and have a family," says organizer Joy West, 76. "I just praise God that we've been able to travel the country and lift up Jesus."

West says her goal is to get people ready for the "rapture." She started at the Denison rodeo in 1989 and wanted to wrap up there. She owns all the horses and plans to keep five of them and sell the rest.
