IDA Team & Riders Excel at Averett

Senior Isabelle Duckett and Sophomore Caroline Johnson shut out riders from other schools on Sunday by winning High Point and Reserve High Point Rider respectively with scores of 71.154% and 67.931%. The St. Andrews dressage team finished the day with 16 points to win the blue ribbon, beating the host school by one point.

High Point & Reserve High Point“We had a great day,” said Coach Jackie Dwelle, “the weather was wet and cold, but the riders rode with grit and determination and demonstrated a high level of feel for their horses. I was very pleased with all of my riders.”


Freshman Elizabeth Donaldson rode her first dressage test in competition to place 2nd in the Intro division with a very accurate and correct ride. Donaldson came to St. Andrews and chose to ride dressage as it was the closest to saddle seat which she learned growing up.

The last Intercollegiate Dressage Association show of the regular season is at Wake Forest University on March 2nd.
