Over the summer I volunteered at Crosswinds Equestrian Center as a camp counselor. This entailed teaching the kids how to ride and take care of the horses. An example of a day consisted of the campers riding in the morning, taking care of their horses after, followed by crafts and afternoon games involving the horses. This was an especially rewarding experience, as Crosswinds has always been a place very close to my heart. When I was little I attended camp at Crosswinds and loved every minute of it— it was part of what made me fall in love with riding in the first place. It was a rewarding experience to be able to help instill the same love for horses the camp counselors instilled in me when I was a camper.
