UMC Hunt Seat Equestrian to Host Pair of Shows Saturday and Sunday at UTOC
CROOKSTON, Minn. – The University of Minnesota Crookston hunt seat equestrian team will open up their 2017 slate with a pair of home shows at University Teaching and Outreach Center (UTOC) Sat., Feb. 4 and Sun., Feb. 5. The Golden Eagles last competed Nov. 12 and 13 at the University of Minnesota. UMC took home high point team honors during Sunday’s show. They will look to continue their strong showings from the fall season as they head into this portion of their slate.
Saturday’s show will open up at 1 p.m., while Sunday will commence at 9 a.m. The show was originally scheduled for Nov. 19 and 20 but inclement weather in the Twin Cities would make it difficult or impossible for many teams to make the trip to Crookston, Minn.
In their last show, Rhiannon Nicoll led the way with a win in Intermediate Equitation over Fences. Selena Young (So., Plymouth, Minn.) placed second in a competitive Intermediate Equitation on the Flat class. Megan Doughty (Fr., Hackensack, Minn.) also picked up a win that Sunday in her section of Walk Trot. In the Open Classes, UMC will look to Monika Frame (Jr., Polson, Mont.) and Mazie Pini (So., Grayslake, Ill.) in Open Fences and Open Flat, while Young will compete in Open Fences and Intermediate Flat.
The Golden Eagles will compete against riders from North Dakota State University, University of Wisconsin-River Falls, University of Minnesota Twin Cities, Lakehead University and University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire.
