Equestrian Club Ends a Successful Show Year

The Belmont Equestrian Club earned 10 ribbons at its final competition of the year held March 1 and 2 at Murray State University. Additionally, the club was awarded a seventh place team ribbon in the Zone Five Region One division for its success at competitions during the 2013-2014 show season. Club members competed against students from other universities including Vanderbilt University, Middle Tennessee State University, University of Tennessee at Knoxville and Sewanee.

“I am so proud of our team this year and our success as a University. We have worked hard over the last 12 months to show our region that Belmont has what it takes to be competitive in the Intercollegiate Horse Show Association. I couldn’t be happier with the way we finished our first year of competition,” said Belmont Equestrian Club President Julie Anderson.

Club members earned the following ribbons:
Julie Anderson: two sixth places
Morgan Wilters: second and fifth places
Courtney O’Connor: third, fourth and fifth places
