Albany-- The Buffalo Riders of Albany are holding their first annual Youth Roundup.

300 boys between the ages of 11 and 15 will be spending the weekend at the Potter Community Center. They'll learn the histories of the Cherokee nation and Buffalo Soldiers.

The goal of the weekend is to shed some positive light in the kid's lives. "It's a good way for us to reach them and teach them and really get to enrich their lives," says Vice-President John Hayes.

Saturday, the boys will enjoy a riding show featuring horses from across the southeast.
