Pastor Brian Downs, Zion and Trinity Lutheran minister, spent five days last week re-enacting the role of a turn of the century circuit preacher. He rode horseback from Presho to Reliance stopping at the farm homes of church members along the way. Monday night he stayed at the Ray Herman home, Tuesday, Todd Meier of Budget Host furnished him a room, Wednesday he stayed at Eymer home and assisted with working cattle while he was there. Thursday he was a guest in the Alfred Schelske home and Friday he stayed with the Randy Holmquists. Saturday morning Pastor Downs rode in the Reliance Centennial Parade.

While this was not Pastors first experience with horses, growing up in upstate New York did not offer many opportunities to ride horseback. Randy Holmquist furnished pastor with the horse, which was about 14 years old. I had a good horse which treated me real good, stated Pastor.
