A Logan County resident recently rode his way onto the podium during a state Special Olympics event.
Matt Wildermuth of Bellefontaine earned a bronze medal at the Special Olympics Ohio State Equestrian Competition Aug. 16 at the Winton Woods Riding Center near Cincinnati. He scored third place in the barrel-racing category with his horse “Rocky.”
Nearly 180 athletes from across Ohio participated in categories ranging from showmanship to trail riding. Mr. Wildermuth represented the team from Logan County Board of Developmental Disabilities.
The 31-year old has worked with horses since childhood and practices skills weekly with Discovery Riders in Zanesfield. He is a son of Bonnie and Dennis Versele and Dan Wildermuth, all of Bellefontaine.
