UF to Host IHSA Semi-Finals; Stacey Westfall Will Offer Freestyle Reining Performance on Saturday
This weekend, March 24 and 25, The University of Findlay’s western equestrian team will host the Intercollegiate Horse Show Association (IHSA) semi-finals at the Equine and Animal Sciences Center, 14700 U.S. Route 68.
Events begin at 9 a.m. each day. There is no cost to attend.
UF alumna Stacey Westfall, owner/operator of Westfall Horsemanship, will give a freestyle reining performance at 8 p.m. Saturday, March 24.
Westfall is a 1997 graduate of the University. Westfall turned heads in 2003 when she won the National Reining Horse Association Futurity by completing a freestyle ride without a bridle or reins. In 2006, she was the first woman ever invited to compete in the Road to the Horse colt-breaking challenge in Murfreesboro, Tenn., and she won.
Westfall has earned many championships since then, and she and her husband, Jesse Westfall, own and operate Westfall Horsemanship in Mount Gilead.
