UNC – Chapel Hill IHSA Show October 21, 2018

Hurricane Florence delayed the start of the intercollegiate competitive season, leading to a late start for both IHSA teams and causing the IDA team to miss riding at the first show of their season hosted by Wake Forest University.
The late start may have motivated the Knights to work harder and smarter in the limited time left to prepare for the first hunter seat show. 6:00 a.m. workouts combined with daily mounted practices led to a tie for the championship ribbon with Duke University at UNC – Chapel Hill on Oct. 21st.
Coach Ashley Duda said, “St Andrews usually has the luxury of opening their season at home. This year, we started our season away and the riders did an excellent job handling the change and unfamiliar horses. We had strong rides throughout the day, bringing home 8 individual class wins. We are trying to stay consistent and clean up a few mistakes from last weekend as we head to compete at NC State tomorrow.”

    1. Kristin, We do have a Pre Veterinary program at St. Andrews. Most students major in Biology and we also offer Biology with a Specialization in Equine Studies. Students have the opportunity to work with our resident Vet as part of the Pre Vet program. This internship program is a practical program involving lectures, wet labs and hands on care of the St. Andrews horses.
