Being a part of the rider program helped me further my love of horses and hounds. I was so thankful and fortunate to be a part of the program because my passion for horses and foxhunting grew and grew. I was given opportunities to meet new people with the same interests as mine. The hard work I put forth at the barn and practicing riding everyday payed off when it was time to enjoy the sport of foxhunting and the camaraderie of fellow enthusiasts. Foxhunting is absolutely SO MUCH FUN and I am forever thankful the rider program helped me afford foxhunting and foxhunting events. The rider program provided me the opportunity to have the time of my life foxhunting, established responsibility, and demonstrate leadership to younger riders.
