Equestrian Strong at IHSA Horseshow
The Army West Point Equestrian Team showed strong at its first IHSA horseshow of second semester recently, hosted by the region's alumni riders. The team traveled to the Crosswinds Equestrian Center in Lagrangeville, NY to compete against ten highly competitive colleges in the Northeast region. Not only were there five top three finishes in multiple categories of the competition, but two team members qualified for the regional finals later this season. Amanda Roper '19 won her walk-trot-canter class, pointing out into the Novice division and assuring her regional qualification. Victoria Kearns '22 also won her walk-trot class, which earned her enough points to qualify for regionals and the walk-trot-canter division next season. Additionally, Madyson Paul '21 earned second in her novice fences class, Karissa Stubblefield '22 earned third in her novice flat class, and Wyatt Flynn '22 earned third in his walk-trot class. The team is continuing to excel as its members prepare to finish the season strong.
