By Carter Anderson - Ava Stearns is a name many in the horse industry know and admire. She credits her success as a junior to trainer Missy Clark and North Run Farm. During her time with North Run, she discovered college riding through Maggie Gampfer, an assistant trainer who was on the equestrian team at Oklahoma State. This opened Ava’s eyes to college riding as a possibility in her life. Fast forward, Ava is now in her second semester of freshman year at Auburn University and is truly enjoying not only the team but also her academic course load. Currently, Ava is an undeclared math and science major and her passion for learning will hopefully lead her to graduate school.
