Auburn Equestrian Wins Overall National Champioship
It was partiularly fitting this evening that Toomer Oaks went out on their last weekend by being rolled in celebration of another Auburn championship. The Auburn Equestrian Team held a celebration at Toomer’s Corner Sunday evening for wining the 2013 NCEA Overall National Championship.
The Tigers defeated Georgia, 3-1, in a ride-off competition Saturday at the Extraco Events Center in Waco, Texas. Auburn also won the Hunt Seat National Championship earlier Saturday.
Auburn head coach Greg Williams said. “We finished in a tie for points with Georgia for the overall when we won the Hunt Seat. They had to finish all the Western events before we could do our final ride-off. Elizabeth Benson raked in two huge wins in the Hunt Seat, and Cheyenne Cracraft sealed the championship with a great ride in reining. This is a great win for Auburn thanks to Coach (Lisa) Helfer and Coach (Jessica) Braswell and our outstanding seniors.”
Congratulations Tigers! You’ve made us all proud. War Eagle!
