Sweet Briar’s Intercollegiate Horse Shows Association Team brought home two big wins on Saturday after an exciting day of competition at Liberty University. The team was crowned champion while Makayla Benjamin ’18 earned the high-point rider award.
Aoife Magner ’19 started the day off with a win in her open flat class, followed by Benjamin finishing second in open flat and first in open fences. Benjamin’s open-fences win also qualified her for regionals in that division.
Emily Schlosberg ’19 was second in her open-fences class. In the intermediate division, Jules Sudol ’18 was third in flat and Courtney Barry ’18 came in second in her fences class. Barry was also second in novice flat, which qualified her for regionals.
Nicole Sabovik ’19 was fifth in her novice flat class and Lily Peterson ’21 won her over-fences class in novice. Amber Snyder ’20 won her advanced walk, trot, canter class and Abbey Narodowy ’20 was second in hers. Jade Ashley ’20 was second in her first show at the beginner walk, trot, canter level and Madeleine McAllister ’2, riding in her very first show ever, landed in fourth place in the walk, trot division.
The team will compete again next weekend at the University of Mary Washington to finish up its regular season.
