In addition to three FEI divisions and Beginner Novice through Advanced Horse Trials, Poplar Place Farm hosted both an Area III Adult Team Challenge and a Collegiate Team Challenge with six teams participating in each challenge.
Auburn, University of Georgia, Columbus State University, Alabama, Translyvania and Mississippi State sent riders to participate in the Challenge. UGA won the team challenge on a score of 115.1 followed closely by Alabama in second place on a score of 116.8. Click here to see the final team scores.
Many of the teams were fundraising to help finance their trip to the inaugural USEA Intercollegiate Eventing Team Championship at the Virginia Horse Trials May 26-29. It was great to see these young riders taking the initiative to support their team and the camaraderie displayed at this weekend’s event!
Now it’s time to play a friendly game of “Who Jumped It Best?” featuring college team riders competing at the Novice level at Poplar Place Farm.
