Equestrian Hunt Seat - Mon, Feb. 13, 2017

Morehead, Ky. – The Midway University equestrian hunt seat team wrapped up their regular season this past weekend when they traveled to Morehead, Ky. to compete in a show at Morehead State University. 

It was the last chance that the riders would have to qualify for regionals, which begin on Saturday, February 25, in Morehead, Kentucky. The Eagles will have four riders who will compete at regionals including, Jen Day in open fences, Kacey Snook in open equitation flat and intermediate fences, Ashley Mathis in intermediate equitation flat and Alexandria Jones in walk-trot flat.

"I am extremely proud of these young ladies on finishing up the season with strong individual rides," noted head coach, Jennifer Sullivan. "They have worked very hard all year long and it has shown in their performances."

During the first day on Saturday, February 11, the Eagles had three different riders take home a first place finish. Jen Day (Taylor, Texas) got things started with a first place finish in open fences, while Ashley Mathis (Delaware, Ohio) and Alexandria Jones (Knoxville, Tenn.) took home first in intermediate fences and walk-trot-canter flat, respectively.

Then in the second day of the show on Sunday, Midway had two other riders garner first place honors. Liz Douglas (New York, N.Y.) and Lesley Du Plessis each earned a first place finish in walk-trot-canter flat.
