The Cedar Springs Equestrian Team had three competitions this year and finished second over all in District A on September 16, at the Kent County Fairgrounds. The top two teams in each division then went on to regionals.

On September 28-30, 11 riders and their mounts traveled to Mason, Michigan for the Regional competition at Ingham County Fairgrounds. They finished fourth in the Region with 256 points. 

“It was a long, chilly weekend competing against some of the top riders in the state. I am so proud of our team coming in fourth at Regionals!” said Coach Katie VanDyke. 

The team competed in Hunt Seat, Saddle Seat, Western, Trail and Speed divisions. They had 45 placings in 15 events, taking first in Saddle Seat Pattern, Western Equitation, Western Bareback, Saddle Seat Pattern and Flag Race.
