If you make it to the Roanoke Valley Horse Show, chances are you'll see Virginia Tech's equestrian team.

For one team member, horses are a labor of love that extends well beyond the horse ring.

Kayleigh Burke has been riding horses her whole life. As a rising junior at Virginia Tech she continues to devote as much time to that hobby as possible, which is what has brought her here to the Roanoke Valley Horse Show.
