The University of Louisville’s saddle seat team took top honors at the Intercollegiate Saddle Seat Riding Association’s spring horse show at Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington April 12.
UofL’s team won the 2013 Cumulative Year-end Championship Team Award at the event, receiving a trophy, saddle pads, halters, lead shanks and other horse supplies.
Two UofL students also won the state riding association’s Rider of the Year awards. Kristen Smith was named champion senior and Jenny McGowan, reserve champion senior.
The state riding association, formed in 2008, gives Kentucky college students a chance to show American Saddlebred, Morgan, Arabian and other trotting horses without having to own a horse.
