IHSA Teams Will Not Weaken!

IHSA Western and Hunter Seat Equestrian Teams both competed last weekend. Both teams elected to show their less experienced riders. Coach Duda reflected, “We will keep working to get better, especially on the flat. Took a greener team this week and it showed.” Coach Wennberg agreed saying, “Great team in the making, we will work harder and not weaken.”

Individual riders triumphed including Sydney Eller and Taylor Fowler who qualified for Regionals in Intermediate Flat and Novice Fences respectively. Gina Ulveie earned the Reserve High Point Rider title for the Western team. Sydney reflected on the weekend saying, “Our team, along with their amazing parents, were all very supportive. We all plan to rally and work very hard to come back stronger on November 11th!”
