It was a busy month for the University of Findlay Equestrian Show Teams with at least one team competing every week leading up to Thanksgiving. Highlights of the month include the IHSA Western team maintaining their undefeated streak, multiple teams receiving highpoint team and multiple IHSA Hunt Seat members qualifying for Regionals.
Showing on home turf at the University of Findlay Western Barn, the IHSA Western team remains undefeated by earning high point team in both the morning and afternoon shows. In addition to the highpoint team award, Findlay riders also won individual high point rider awards. In the morning show, Hailey Ostrowski was the high point rider, with Julie Roshelli placing as reserve high point rider.

Congratulation to these three riders and the rest of the Findlay IHSA Western team for their successes this season.
