NDSU Riders Have Successful Fall Season

NDSU’s western equestrian team brings home honors from several competitions.

North Dakota State University’s western equestrian team enjoyed a successful fall competition season.

During a two-day competition at the University of Minnesota Crookston, the team was named the reserve high-point team both days. Ashley Lindell, a senior from Solway, Minn., was named the high point rider on the first day of the event.

The team was named the high-point team during the second day of competition at the University of Minnesota in St. Paul. Lindell was high-point rider the first day, and Megan Hansen, a senior from Breckenridge, Minn., was reserve high-point rider the second day.

Hansen also was named high-point rider in competition at NDSU and the first day of competition at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls.

NDSU was the high-point team the first day of the University of Wisconsin competition and reserve high-point team the second day. Lindell was reserve high-point rider the second day of that event.

In National Collegiate Equestrian Association exhibition competition in Brookings, S.D., Hansen was named Most Outstanding Player in the horsemanship event and Lindell was named Most Outstanding Player in the reining event.

The team has 26 members.

“I am very happy with the way the season has been going,” team coach Tara Swanson says. “There are only 10 of the 26 team members who are returning western riders, so we have a very young and green team this year, but everyone has really stepped up, worked hard and been placing well.”
