NDSU’s Western equestrian team takes top honors in several fall competitions.

North Dakota State University’s Western equestrian team ended a strong fall competition season by being named high-point team on the first day of a recent two-day event at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls.

The team was named reserve high-point team the second day of the competition.

The team began its fall season by earning the title of reserve high-point team the first day of competition at the University of Minnesota on Oct. 4-5. Also, team member Janna Rice, a senior from Maddock, earned reserve high-point rider recognition.

In a competition at the University of Minnesota-Crookston on Oct. 25-26, the team was named co-champion high-point team both days. Team member Nicole Anderson, a freshman from Fergus Falls, Minn., was reserve high-point rider the first day and high-point rider the second day.

At a show the team hosted at the NDSU Equine Center on Nov. 8-9, the team gained high-point team honors the second day. Anderson was high-point rider the first day and Rice was the reserve high-point rider the second day.

“This year’s team has some really strong senior leadership, as well as a tremendous amount of new freshman talent, which has resulted in a really well-balanced and successful team,” says team coach Tara Swanson.

The team, which consists of 28 members, will start its spring competition season Jan. 31, 2015, with a dual match against South Dakota State University.
