IHSA Hunter Seat Team wins victory at home

We congratulate the St. Andrews Hunter Seat IHSA Team on winning the first show of the season on Saturday, Oct. 5.  The show was held at the Equestrian Center and both students, staff and coaches worked together seamlessly to make it a success.

Coach Ashley Duda said“I am very proud of the St. Andrews students for putting on a very well run horse show.  The riders who competed stayed focused and really were able to show growth in their riding.  At the end of the day, the riding accomplishment was reflected on the scoreboard.  We have another competition this coming weekend.  The entire team and coaching staff are working hard to be as strong as possible heading to our first away horse show.”
