      This past weekend, the Xaiver Equestrian Team traveled to Midway College to compete at the first horse show of 2013! On Saturday, the team racked up a collection of first and seconds throughout their jumping and flat classes! Open rider Lizz Kingsbury won her flat class. Novice Rider Stevie Manhart won her flat class, and placed second in her over fences. Emma Lastowski recieved second in both of her jumping and overfences class in the Novice division. At the end of the day, Xavier Equestrian took home Reserve High Point Team. 

      Sunday was another wonderful day for the Xavier Equestrian Team. Emma Lastowski was again one of the star riders for the day. She recieved second in Novice over fences and first in her Novice flat class. With that, she recieved Reserve Champion Point Rider for the day. Along with Emma, Jacqueline Hipp, Amy Sullivan, Katie Clouser and Stevie Manhart recieved first place in their classes. This led XUET to winning Reserve High Point Team, and also broke XUET's record for points scored. 

 

Overall, Xavier Equestrian had a very successful weekend and is looking forward to the next horse show located at University of Kentucky on Feburary 22-23.
