I’m sure some of you have heard of Mel Van Der Kamp, the 11 year old equestrian from the Netherlands. If you haven’t checked him out yet, his Instagram is worth a follow @melvanderkamp. Originally from Ethiopia, he moved to Holland when he was 1 year old. He started riding his first pony when he was 8, and just 3 years later is showing his two jumpers, Sofie and Rinaldo. Mel hangs out at Stal Wilten in his spare time where he rides stallions, practices his jumping and dressage, designs courses, and helps show off their gorgeous sale horses!
So, if you like impressive kids riding beautiful horses over stunning courses, his instagram has plenty of that! Plus, every once and a while there’s some hilariously relatable memes about riding big warmbloods that even some of us vertically challenged adult riders can relate to!
How many of you wish you had this childhood? We sure do!
