Equestrian students host, participate in Sho-Me Horse Circuit show Saturday

April 29, 2014

The Stephens College Equestrian Center hosted the Sho-Me Horse Circuit Horse Show this past weekend, attracting both Stephens students and outside riders.
It was the first show of the season for the Sho-Me Horse Circuit, the governing body of as many as 18 shows a year.
Stephens had 16 horses compete in addition to 30 horses brought in from the public, said instructor Karen Craighead, whose Equestrian Events Management class hosted the event.
“That blend of school horses and outside horses made for a nice show,” she said.

Students had the opportunity to not only compete but also plan and execute the event, said Michelle Humbert, a junior in the class.
“This event combines saddleseat and western, which typically each have huge shows in the area,” she said. “It’s unusual to have them both in one show.”

That allowed each discipline to see and interact with the other, she added.
Junior Hayley Upton typically competes as a huntseat rider, snagging the championship in her division at the Irish Fox Show in St. Louis earlier this semester. On Saturday, she took 2nd place in Class 2 American Saddlebred Horse Driving. Jessica Rauls took 1st place.
