Laura Ward, an equestrian professor at William Woods, added, "This age group has so much energy. You just get caught up in their enthusiasm. When you have the 10-year-olds and the 11-year-olds, it reminds you, meaning the adult rider, of what you were like at one time. You remember what it was just to be truly in love with horses."
The 15th year of the riding academy attracted riders from 11 states. Watch the video to see a child's perspective of the camp.
