"I wanted to say thank you for the great experience you put together at the Dirt Shredders Camp this week. Our son Hudson loved it and is more stoked then ever to go riding. It hasn't always been easy to get him excited to go ride and I think the combinations of the coaches and the other kids were really great for him." - Kyle and Bridget
