K-State Equestrian Edges Oklahoma State

MANHATTAN, Kan. With strong performances from Whitney Snyder and Leslie Yates, the K-State women’s Equestrian team squeezed by Oklahoma State and New Mexico State Saturday at Fox Creek Stables.

 

 For the second time this season K-State and Oklahoma State tied in competition and had to use a tie breaker to declare a winner. After a 10-10 tie, raw scores of each schools were used and K-State came out on top, 1376 to Oklahoma State's 1374.5.

 

Because there were three schools competing, there were three separate score cards: KSU vs. OSU, OSU vs. NMSU and KSU vs. NMSU. K-State tied Oklahoma State 10-10 and defeated New Mexico State 15-5, while Oklahoma State defeated New Mexico State 10-9.

 

“This was too close for comfort today but we are happy with the win,” head coach Teresa Slough said.

 

Junior Whitney Snyder earned MVP honors in Equitation Over Fences for her two wins on the day and sophomore Leslie Yates took home Equitation on the Flat MVP. Mikaela Sundgren also took home MVP honors in horsemanship.

 

The three teams in competition were judged in four different classes including, Reining, Western Horsemanship, Equitation on the Flat and Equitation over Fences.

 

 Each school competed with five riders in each event that counted toward their team points. Each school also entered two Junior Varsity riders who rode the pattern or test and was scored by the judge, but the scores did not count toward the Varsity total.  

 

“We did well in Horsemanship and Fences and we did better in the flat and that is why we came out with the victory,” Slough said.

 

This was the final competition of the semester for the Wildcats and will resume the schedule on February 24th as the take on Baylor in a head-to-head match in Waco, Texas.
