When is a horse not just a horse? When the horse helps a 10-year-old girl win the World’s Championship Horse Show 2017 in Louisville, of course.

Lyla Grace Wroble, of Mokena, did just that on Aug. 23, along with a little help from the horse she rode, Roy, who goes by the name Glenview’s Excelalante in competitions. It was Lyla’s 10th win in competition this year.
