NEO’s first equestrian team show a success

Miami, Oklahoma – Thursday, Oct. 31, 2013 – The equestrian team at Northeastern Oklahoma A&M College (NEO) hosted its first annual IHSA (Intercollegiate Horse Show Association) horse show Oct. 26 and took Reserve High Point Team Saturday and third place Sunday, with individual achievements as well.

A total of nine teams competed at NEO, including Missouri State University, Truman State University, Blackhawk College, Illinois State University and Iowa State University. NEO hosted a total of 102 riders for a day-long competition in horsemanship and reining.

NEO’s advanced rider, Caitlin Dunsmore, pointed up to the open division by accumulating 36 points over the past season up to now.

“I’m very excited to be able to point up into the open division this weekend. It feels great to be rewarded for all the hard work and time I have put into this sport,” Dunsmore said.

Brooke Mareth also pointed up to the open division on Sunday at Missouri State University. Both are now qualified for the regional show in the spring that will be hosted by MSU.

The equestrian team traveled to MSU Sunday for the second weekend competition. Next year NEO will most likely host both the Saturday and Sunday competitions. As a team NEO took Reserve High Point Team Saturday and third place Sunday.

“We had some tough draws at Sunday’s show,” said Equestrian Coach Chelsie Huseman. “However, there were many individual successes that helped make up for that.”

Riders draw at random the horse they will compete on. Some horses are better than others, but the rider strives to get the best ride in the class.

The equestrian team’s final competition for the fall is Nov. 23 and 24at Blackhawk College in Ill.
