New hunter/jumper professor saddles up for William Woods University

Susie Ouderkirk’s path to William Woods University started on her Aunt Janet’s Kansas farm. Ouderkirk, William Woods’ new hunter/jumper professor, spent summers as a “little horse-crazy girl” at the age of five with her Aunt Janet whose farm came with an older male horse. Aunt Janet would hop Ouderkirk on the horse and told her to “go for it.”
