The show is open to the public."We are excited about hosting MSU. We traveled there last spring for a practice show and had great success," said NEO Head Coach Chelsie Huseman. "We are looking forward to hosting them at our facility to get the equestrian season started. It's a great opportunity to get our feet wet for our first official IHSA (Intercollegiate Horse Show Association) show in October." 

NEO boasts a 26 member team this year with three riders in the beginner category, 12 intermediate II riders, four novice riders, six advanced riders, and one open rider. The lone returning open rider is Mandie House who was one of three qualifiers for regionals last year.
