As one of 19 official judges for the 2019 All American Quarter Horse Congress recently held in Columbus, Ohio, St. Andrews Carla Wennberg was among the elite and nationally recognized equestrian judges to be part of the largest single breed-horse show in the world.
With over 25,000 horse show entries in various
events with 9,000 horses competing and an estimated 650,000 attending the
October 5-26 competition, Wennberg was involved with some 13 days of judging
without a day off — and says she and loved every minute.
To finish off an already exciting weekend, our IHSA Hunter Seat Team competed on Sunday, November 17 at Cottonwood Farm hosted by East Carolina University. Despite the brisk wind and chilly temperature, the team pulled together to bring home the Reserve Champion team ribbon behind UNC – Chapel Hill. Isabel McLaurin was the Reserve High Point Rider!
Congratulations to all our riders and to coaches Ashley and Emilee.
While the western team was away at Liberty, our IDA dressage team battled the rainy skies and some last-minute changes to host a show at the equestrian facility on November 16. Congratulations to the team on being Reserve Champion for the show!
The St. Andrews western IHSA team traveled to Liberty University November 16-17 to compete in their first away show. The team was the champion team both days. Congratulations to Gina Ulveie who was also high point rider for both shows!
