“This weekend we really kept our focus,” assistant coach Ashley Duda said. “For the first time we had some flawless rounds. The concentration of the team was amazing.”


Junior Whitney Snyder also took home the MVP Equitation over Fences award for her first place finish.


“We won the English show and are very happy about that,” head coach Teresa Slough said. “We have to give Texas A&M credit, they are one of the best Western teams in the nation.”


The match also featured a Horsemanship and Equitation on the Flat Exhibition class where K-State took home one win.
