Equestrian team ends semester at hunt seat show

The hunt seat season wrapped up for the Colby Community College equestrian team Dec. 1 and 2 in Colorado Springs, Colo., at a show hosted by Colorado College.  

"I am so very proud of our riders this weekend," said Colby assistant coach Sara Jamison. "Amber Graber pointed out of her division with a win on Saturday.  Madisyn Haggard and Samantha Scholting are also very close to pointing out in that division as a result of their rides this weekend.  We also have several first-year riders that are already placing at the top of their divisions and I am excited to watch their progress the rest of this year.

The team has a break from competition until February 2 when they go to Lincoln, Neb. for a western show.
