Equestrian Team Braves the Storm

 

On Saturday, February 4th, Equestrian Team braved an unexpected snowstorm to compete with five other universities in Lynden, Washington. Despite the weather, Western Washington University hosted a fantastic show with great horses and a lovely (indoor) venue where fifteen UBC Equestrian riders successfully competed. While recent weather has made conditions difficult for Equestrian Team, all of our team members arrived with enthusiasm and rode effectively. Thank you to our drivers for getting us to the show and back safely, and congratulations to all of our riders on a great weekend!
