Mary Washington College, all IHSA (Intercollegiate Horse Show Association) powerhouses
with well over 30 members per team. I am very proud of the consistently excellent
riding on the part of our team.” The R-MC team brought eight horses from its training
facility, Haverhill Equestrian Center, for CNU to use in the show.
On November 4, the team traveled to William & Mary for another full day of showing.
