Three Equestrian Team Riders Headed to Semifinal in Ohio

Central’s equestrian team has finished up the Intercollegiate Horse Show Association (IHSA) regional competition and three of their members have advanced to semi-finals.

Elizabeth Luty, Ellye Main and Erin Weildraayer will be headed to Ohio next week to compete for a chance at nationals.

The team was originally established in 2006 as a club for horse lovers who wanted to bring the sport to Central. The team later developed into a collegiate sports club and competes against other schools in their zone, such as Oregon State University, Washington State University and University of Washington.

Riders compete in western horsemanship, reining, hunt seat equitation, and equitation over fences.
