The Colby Community College equestrian team competed in the final hunt seat show of the semester Nov. 9 and 10 in Colorado Springs, Colo., at a show hosted by Colorado College and the University of Colorado Colorado Springs.

"I am very pleased with our performances this weekend, especially since many of our riders are not as experienced in the hunt seat discipline, said assistant coach Sara Jamison. "We will have plenty of time to continue improving before competitions start up again in the spring semester."

The Trojans ride again Nov. 23 and 24 in a western show before taking a break in competition until February.
