Abby Blackburn, captain of Transylvania University’s eventing team, was named as a finalist for her school’s Female Athlete of the Year award alongside soccer players, basketball players, golfers, and other athletes competing in more “traditional” school sports. On her way home from competing at the USEA Intercollegiate Eventing Championship at Chattahoochee Hills Horse Trials last weekend Abby and the team’s coach, Tanya Davis, and tuned in to the annual all-sport athletic banquet via live-stream when it was announced that she had won the honor! As far as anyone is yet aware, this is the first time in history that a University has given an Athlete of the Year award to an event rider.
