Pardon the cliché, but it’s the beginning of a new school year, and getting back in the saddle can take some serious work. But the truth is, most William Woods University Equestrian students hardly spent their summers relaxing by the pool. Summer to an equestrian student means more time for riding, learning, working with horses and making connections with industry leaders.
William Woods University equestrian students have taken on roles in equestrian education, in training, instructing, grooming, exercising horses and so much more over their summers.
Some of you were in the beautiful Adirondacks of upstate New York, others riding along the Rocky Mountains. Some of you had the privilege of helping young riders at camp fall in love with horses and others got to work in Equine Therapy, helping others find peace in riding.
We are proud of the amazing ways William Woods University students spend their summers and we want to share about yours — about your horse, the lessons you learned, your reignited passions or new found love for a discipline.
Please, leave a little bit about what you did last summer in the comments section – either on this blog or on Facebook. Post a photo if you’d like! Tell us a little bit about how you’re feeling now that summer has come to an end. What does it mean for your future? Spill! We will post some of the best responses together next week.
