This year at the 77th annual Bridlespur Horse Show, Stephens College equestrian studies students once again made their mark, taking home many accolades. The event took place from April 11-13 at the National Equestrian Center in Lake St. Louis, Mo. 

“We are beyond proud of our Stephens students who represented Stephens so well for us at the National Equestrian Center for the Bridlespur Horse Show,” said Program Coordinator Sara Linde Patel. “The teamwork and dedication to their horses and one another is truly inspiring.”

All of the horses are Stephens College horses, she said.
