Anna Ash placed 1st in her first-ever Collegiate Horsemanship class and was very competitive in her Ranch Riding classes. She is excited to go into the spring semester with a win under her belt.

Rookie Horsemanship

This was Carson Richards' first time loping in a collegiate horse show. Carson showed great resilience and showmanship and placed 5th & 6th clinching more points for MGA Equestrian Team's total points.

Beginner Horsemanship

Elizabeth Carter had a great first horse show. As a beginner rider, she learned about connecting with her horse early on in the class and had a great first ride. Elizabeth aced 5th & 6th and is excited to take what she learned into the spring semester.

Alivia Captain, despite great adversity, succeeded for her team. Two days ago, Alivia underwent hand surgery due to an accident and rode for her team with a bandaged hand. Even with these shortcomings, Alivia rose above the competition and placed 1st and 3rd in her first horse shows for MGA!

The team sends a huge thank you to all of the families that came out to support them.

Congratulations to all of the MGA Equestrian Team riders!
