Kennedy Baker, 7, of Goreville, rides Dauber with the assistance of Dallas Broeker, a senior from Chadron, Nebraska, studying nursing, during a session of Specialized Equine Services and Therapeutic Riding on Monday, May 1, 2017, at Giant City Stables in Makanda. The session marked the second time Baker was able to ride a horse without the assistance of another rider to support her. “It’s like when you first see your kid making the first two steps by herself,” said Santiago Tomas, barn manager at the stables who typically rides with Baker. “It kind of gives you pride.” (Jacob Wiegand | @jawiegandphoto)

Santiago Thomas, a native of Cherán, Mexico, who lives in Cobden, polishes his horses’ hooves May 7 in preparation for pictures with guests during the annual Sweethearts of the Saddle Derby Day Gala at the Carterville Community Center. “It’s like girls getting their nails painted,” said Thomas, the barn manager at Giant City Stables. “I got up early to give them a bath as well. … My job is to have the horses fed, have the correct saddle and be ready for the day’s programs.” All funds raised at the event benefited students enrolled in Specialized Equine Services and Therapeutic Riding at Giant City Stables. — May 7, 2016, Carterville, Ill.
