Equestrian Team Advances to Nationals

On April 11, the Truman Equestrian Team accomplished something no other team in the 15 plus year history of the program has ever accomplished, by qualifying a whole team of riders for nationals.

The team first qualified for zones competition by beating out the 15 other hunt seat teams in the region over the course of the season to win the Zone 9 Region 2 championship.

At zones competition, Truman scored 44 points, finishing second behind St. Mary of the Woods College with 48 points and ahead of University of Minnesota-Crookston with 36 points.

The team will also be represented at nationals by individual riders Corinne Smith and Elizabeth Bramon who won their individual classes at zones to advance.

IHSA Nationals will take place May 6-9 at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Ky. IHSA is made up of more than 350 teams and 8,500 riders from throughout the United States and parts of Canada and was founded as a way to give collegiate equestrian athletes of all experience levels the opportunity to compete.
