Riding high: Equestrian team eyes another shot at championship
TCU women’s equestrian is looking to finish the job following the program’s first national championship runner-up performance in the 2016 National Collegiate Equestrian Association National Championships.
After losing by a single point in the championship round last season, senior Kari Hancock said this year’s mindset is for the team to come back stronger and win the NCEA National Championship.
“One point is not a lot when you’re coming to the national championship,” Hancock said. “Now we have that confidence in what our team can do, we have the talent and we have the hard work.”
TCU Director of Equestrian Haley Schoolfield said this year the team will take extra notice of the competition and come prepared.
“Despite how accomplished our riders are, they’re very humble, quiet winners, and they work hard at their craft,” Schoolfield said.
