The St. Andrews IHSA Western Team rallied this weekend to take the regional lead with 93 points, 10 points ahead of second place Virginia Tech. “Appreciate ALL the teams helping the Western Team stay ahead in points and to be successful this fall season!” said Coach Carla Wennberg in an email to Equestrian Team members. Wennberg finished by saying, “It takes a village to host and perform with success! It takes great leadership.”
The shows this weekend were originally scheduled for September. In the aftermath of Hurricane Florence several intercollegiate horse shows were rescheduled for later in the fall or moved to the spring.

St. Andrews Equestrian Program is dedicated to the development of future leaders in the equine industry. The program is home to the 2016 and 2017 Intercollegiate Horse Show Association (IHSA) National Champions in Western Horsemanship. The Hunter Seat team is regularly represented at IHSA Nationals and the Intercollegiate Dressage Association (IDA) team has sent riders to the National Championships nearly every year since 2002. Students also ride at USHJA and USEF rated shows as well as attending schooling shows.
A small liberal arts and sciences university, St. Andrews majors include Business, Biology and Therapeutic Horsemanship.

Reflecting back on last semester, I was fortunate enough to be able to attend two horse shows with the SAU Show team. I attended one of the Tryon B Shows and the annual Duke Jump for the Children horse show. The Tryon B Show holds a special place in my heart because it was the first weekend after my boyfriend had been deployed to Afghanistan. This horse show made for a really good distraction and helped me adjust to the deployment.
