Equestrianism had never been heard of in Yihuang, an agricultural county in east China's Jiangxi Province, until Sunshine Riding School began recruiting rural teenagers in 2015.

So far, most of the 90 students are working or aspiring to work in horse riding clubs in China's largest cities such as Beijing, Shanghai and Hangzhou.
